Ross Lewis Mangles
Birth: Apr. 14, 1833
West Bengal, India
Death: Feb. 28, 1905
Surrey, England

Indian Mutiny Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in Calcutta, British India, he was a civilian volunteer serving as an assistant magistrate in the Bengal Civil Service. On July 30, 1857, Mangles was with detachments of Her Majesty's 10th and 37th Regiments, dispatched to the relief of Arrah, India. The force fell under a heavy attack and Mangles was one of the wounded. After binding up his wounds, he carried a wounded soldier of the 37th Regiment during the retreat for several miles out of action and to safety. For most prestigious gallantry, he was awarded the Victoria Cross on July 8, 1859. He died in Pirbright, England, at age 71 and is one of only five civilians to be vested the Victoria Cross. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
