2. George Harry Mullin VC, MM. Wikipedia entry:
On 30 October 1917 at Passchendaele, Belgium, Sergeant Mullin single-handedly captured a pill-box which had withstood heavy bombardment and was causing heavy casualties and holding up the attack. He rushed the snipers' post in front, destroyed the garrison with bombs, shot two gunners and then compelled the remaining 10 men to surrender. All the time rapid fire was directed on him and his clothes were riddled with bullets, but he never faltered in his purpose and he not only helped to save the situation but indirectly saved many lives.(Submitted on June 26, 2022, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
