Charles George Baker
Birth: Dec. 8, 1830
Death: Feb. 19, 1906

Indian Mutiny Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in Neocolly, Bengal, India, he served as a Lieutenant in the Bengal Police Battalion, Bengal Army. On September 27, 1858, at Suhejnee, Bengal, India, Lieutenant Baker was in command of a detachment of about 120 men party of cavalry and mounted police. Suddenly when his troop was attacked and put to flight by a force of about 300 rebels, Lieutenant Baker brilliantly deployed his men which resulted in the utter defeat of the enemy. For most prestigious gallantry, he was awarded the Victoria Cross on February 22, 1862. After the Mutiny, he served as a senior Police officer in Bengal and later as head of the Egyptian police force with the rank of Major General. He died at age 75 in Southbourne, England. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
