Albert White
Birth: 1889
Death: May 19, 1917

World War I Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in Liverpool, England, he served as a Sergeant in the 2nd Battalion, South Wales Borderers, British Army. At Monchy-Le-Preux, France on May 19, 1917, Sergeant White, realizing during an attack that one of the enemy's machine-guns, had not been located. He knew this position would hold up the whole advance of his company, so he dashed ahead to capture the gun. When within a few yards of it, he fell riddled with bullets and sacrificed his life in an attempt to secure the success of the operation. For gallantry in the face of the enemy, he was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross on June 27, 1917. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
