    I tend to believe that any soldier that fought during WW1 is a hero, my grandfather being one of these simple infantryman thrown into the hell that was Verdun.
    But that's just me.

    just wanted to point out that you mentioned my Great Grandpa but only put him down as First World War,

    which is correct but ill explain his story

    He was 43 years old, and a sergeant in the 20th Battalion, 1st Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force during the First World War. On 18 August 1917 during the Battle of Hill 70 north-west of Lens, France, he performed a deed for which he was awarded the Victoria Cross.

    No. 57113 Sjt. Frederick Hobson, late Can. Inf. Bn.
    During a strong enemy counter-attack a Lewis gun in a forward post in a communication trench leading to the enemy lines, was buried by a shell, and the crew, with the exception of one man, killed.
    Sjt. Hobson, though not a gunner, grasping the great importance of the post, rushed from his trench, dug out the gun, and got it into action against the enemy who were now advancing down the trench and across the open.
    A jam caused the gun to stop firing. Though wounded, he left the gunner to correct the stoppage, rushed forward at the advancing enemy and, with bayonet and clubbed rifle, single handed, held them back until he himself was killed by a rifle shot. By this time however, the Lewis gun was again in action and reinforcements shortly afterwards arriving, the enemy were beaten off.
    The valour and devotion to duty displayed by this non-commissioned Officer gave the gunner the time required to again get the gun into action, and saved a most serious situation.

    R.I.P Sgt. Hobson, I think of you all the time, even tho i didn't get the chance to meet you, does not mean you run through my mind. You make me proud to be a Canadian and proud to know I had such a great soldier in my family. im thankful for your efforts in the war.

    Sjt. Frederick Hobson, 20th Battalion/1st Battalion

    You earned it

    His Victoria Cross is displayed at the Canadian War Museum (Ottawa, Canada). A replica of his medal and copy of his citation are also on display at the Sgt. F. Hobson VC Armoury in Simcoe, Canada.
