George Sellar
Birth: Dec., 1850
Death: Nov. 1, 1889

Second Afghan War Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. He served as a Lance Corporal in the 72nd Regiment, Ross-shire Buffs, Duke of Albany's. At Asmai Heights, Kabul, Afghanistan, December 14, 1879, Lance Corporal Sellar led an attack on a enemy position. Under heavy fire, dashing on in front of the party up a slope, he engaged in a desperate conflict with one of the enemy and killed him. In this encounter Lance Corporal Sellar was also severely wounded. For most prestigious gallantry, he was awarded the Victoria Cross Medal and later promoted Sergeant. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
