Robert Bellew Adams
Birth: Jul. 26, 1856
Death: Feb. 13, 1928

Tirah Campaign Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in Muree, Punjab, India, of Scottish parents, he served as a Lieutenant Colonel in the Staff Corps and Corps of Guides, Indian Army. On August 17, 1897 at Nawa Kili, Upper Swat, India, Lieutenant Colonel Adams, with two other officers and five men of the Guides, went under a heavy and close fire, to the rescue of a Lieutenant of the Lancashire Fusiliers who was lying wounded and surrounded by enemy swordsmen. While the wounded officer was being brought back under cover he was unfortunately killed, one of the officers of the rescue party was also mortally wounded and Colonel Adams' horse and three others were shot. For gallantry in the face of the enemy, he was awarded the Victoria Cross in November 1897 and remaining in the Army, later achieved rank of Major General. He died at age 71 in Inverness, Scotland. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
