Edward Barber
Birth: Jun. 10, 1893
Dacorum Borough
Hertfordshire, England
Death: Mar. 12, 1915, France

World War I Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in Tring, England, he served as a Private in the 1st Battalion, Grenadier Guards, British Army. At the battle of Neuve Chapelle, France, on March 12, 1915, Private Barber ran in front of his company and began to throw bombs on the enemy. He with such effect, forced a large number the enemy to immediately surrender. When the company reached Private Barber they found him alone and unsupported, holding the enemy all about him. Private Barber was killed later that day by a sniper. For most prestigious gallantry, he was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross on April 19, 1915. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
