Local Heroes - Captain John Fox-Russell


For most conspicuous bravery displayed in action until he was killed. Captain Russell repeatedly went out to attend the wounded under murderous fire from snipers and machine-guns, and in many cases, when no other means were at hand, carried them in himself, although almost exhausted. He showed the greatest possible degree of valour.
—The London Gazette, (No. 30491) dated 8 January 1918
