George Morby Ingram
George Morby Ingram (VC, MM) was an Australian recipient of the Victoria Cross, the highest and most prestigious award for gallantry in the face of the enemy that can be awarded to British and Commonwealth forces.
On 5 October 1918, at Montbrehain , east of Peronne, France, Lieutenant Ingram, at the head of his men, rushed and captured nine enemy machine-guns, and killed 42 of the enemy after stubborn resistance. Later, when his company had suffered severe casualties, including many of the leaders, he again rushed a machine-gun post, shot six of the enemy and captured the gun. On two subsequent occasions he attacked enemy posts, inflicting many casualties and taking 62 prisoners.
