James Neville Marshall
Birth: Jun. 12, 1887
Death: Nov. 4, 1918

World War I Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in Manchester, England, he served as Lieutenant Colonel in command of the Irish Guards attached 16th Battalion Lancashire Fusiliers, British Army. On November 4, 1918, in the attack on the Sambre-Oise Canal, Catillon, France, when a partly constructed bridge came under concentrated enemy fire, Lieutenant Colonel Marshall went forward and organized parties to repair the bridge. When his party of men was almost over taken with many being killed and wounded, he continued to inspire his command. Under intense fire and with complete disregard of his own safety, he stood on the bank encouraging his men while assisting in the work. When the bridge was repaired, he attempted to rush across at the head of his battalion and was killed. For most conspicuous bravery, he was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
