Harold Sandford Mugford
Birth: Aug. 31, 1894
Death: Jun. 16, 1958

World War I Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. He served a Lance Corporal in the 8th Squadron, Machine Gun Corps. On April 11, 1917, at Monchy-Le-Preux, France, Lance-Corporal Mugford got his machine gun into a forward exposed position from which he began firing onto the enemy. After his comrade was killed and himself severely wounded, he was ordered to go have his wounds dressed. He refused to do so staying to inflict damage on the enemy with his gun. Soon afterwards a shell broke both his legs but he still remained with his gun until later removed to the dressing station when he was again wounded. For most extreme valor, he was awarded the Victoria Cross Medal in November 1917. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
