Norman Harvey
Birth: Apr. 6, 1899
Death: Feb. 16, 1942

World War I British Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. He served as a Private in the 1st Battalion Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, British Army. On October 25, 1918, his company was held up and suffering heavy casualties from German machine-guns at Ingovghem, Belgium. Private Harvey rushed forward, engaged the enemy disposing of 20 of them and capturing the guns. Later when his company was checked by another enemy strong point he again rushed forward and put the enemy in retreat. That, same night after dark he voluntarily carried out a important reconnaissance mission and gained valuable information. For most prestigious gallantry, he was awarded the Victoria Cross Medal. He also served in World War II, as Quartermaster Sergeant in the Royal Engineers and was killed in action, near Haifa Palestine. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
