John Simpson
Birth: Jan. 29, 1826
Death: Oct. 27, 1884

Indian Mutiny Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. He served as a Sergeant in the 42nd Regiment, Black Watch Royal Highlanders. On April 15, 1858, during the attack on Fort Ruhya, India, Sergeant Simpson volunteered to go to an exposed point of the parapet of the fort under heavy fire and carried back a wounded Lieutenant and a Private, both safely to his own lines. For prestigious gallantry in the face of the enemy, he was awarded the Victoria Cross Medal and later achieved the rank of Major. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
