SGT Charles William Train
Birth: Sep. 21, 1890
London Borough of Islington
Greater London, England
Death: Mar. 28, 1965
Greater Vancouver Regional District
British Columbia, Canada

World War I British Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. He served as a Corporal in the London Scottish Regiment, British Army. On December 8, 1917, at Ein Kerem, Palestine, his company was unexpectedly engaged by two enemy machine-guns. Corporal Train on his own initiative rushed forward, with rifle grenades and succeeded in putting some of the team out of action by a direct hit. He shot an officer and killed or wounded the remainder of the team. He then went to the assistance of a comrade who was bombing the enemy from the front and killed another putting the second machine-gun out of action. For courage in action, he was promoted Sergeant and awarded the Victoria Cross Medal. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
