Henry John Andrews
Birth: 1871
Death: Oct. 22, 1919

Waziristan Campaign Victoria Cross Recipient. He was an English Doctor, serving as a temporary Captain in the Indian Medical Service, British Indian Army. On October 22, 1919, he was the Senior Medical Officer in charge of the Khajuri Post, Waziristan, India, when a British convoy had been attacked in the vicinity of the post and men had been wounded. He at once took out a medical team to the scene of action, under heavy fire and established an aid station. Affording protection to the wounded, he subsequently moved the aid station to another safer position and continued to attend to the wounded. Finally, when a medical van was available to remove the wounded, he showed the utmost disregard of danger in collecting the wounded under fire and was himself killed while stepping into the van on the completion of his task. For most prestigious gallantry in the face of the enemy, he was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
