Honored Allies Wednesday: Eric Anderson (United Kingdom)

 
                 Eric Anderson

"On 6 April 1943 on the Wadi Akarit, Tunisia, when a company of The East Yorkshire Regiment had to withdraw temporarily behind the crest of a hill, Private Anderson, a stretcher-bearer, went forward alone through heavy fire to rescue the wounded.  Three times he brought in wounded comrades, and was rendering first aid to a fourth when he was mortally wounded."

From Pvt. Eric Anderson's Victoria Cross citation, awarded in 1943.

An nod to a brave man who helped his fellow comrades in the fight to rid our world of fascism,
Brian
