Lieutenant William M.M. Edwards 2 HLI
At the battle of Tel - el - Kebir, on September 13th 1882, Lieutenant Edwards displayed great courage in leading a party of his men to the attack on a redoubt. He outdistanced his followers and dashed into the Egyptian Battery, killed the Officer-in-Charge, and was knocked down by a gunner. Three of his men arriving at the moment saved him from being killed.
