John Manners Smith
Birth: Aug. 30, 1864
Death: Jan. 6, 1920

Hunza Campaign Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. He served as a Lieutenant with the Indian Staff Corps, 5th Gurkha Regiment. On December 20, 1891, Lieutenant John Manners Smith was in command of a small storming party of 50 rifles to attack a strong position occupied by the enemy near Nilt, India. For nearly four hours he steadily moved his men from point to point and was the first man to reach the enemy's sangars capturing the position with his men. For conspicuous bravery, he was awarded the Victoria Cross Medal in July 1892 and later achieved the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
