Death: Feb. 21, 1961
County Down, Northern Ireland

Second Boer War Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in Lancashire, England, he served as a Private in the 1st Battalion, Manchester Regiment, British Army. During the attack on Caesar's Camp, in Natal, January 6, 1900, Private Scott with another Private occupied a sangar, on the left flank when other men from their unit had been shot down and their positions occupied by Boers. Private Scott although wounded, with his two companions held their post for fifteen hours without food or water and under heavy fire. They kept up their return fire and a smart look out although the Boers occupied some sangars on their immediate left rear. For bravery in the face of the enemy he was awarded the Victoria Cross. He later served in World War I, World War II and achieved the rank of Regimental Quartermaster Sergeant. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
