Robert Hill Hanna
Birth: Aug. 6, 1887
Death: Jun. 15, 1967

World War I British Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. He served as a Lieutenant in the 29th Battalion, British Columbia Regiment, CEF. On August 21, 1917, his company was met by heavy German resistance at Lens, France. After being beaten off by three assaults and many casualties, Lieutenant Hanna took command of the company. Under heavy machine gun fire, he led a unit against the enemy and personally killed four and captured the position. For extreme courage in action, he was awarded the Victoria Cross Medal by King George V, at Buckingham Palace on December 5, 1917. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
