David Nelson

Biography:David Nelson (3 April 1886-8 April 1918) was an Irish 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.

Nelson was born Deraghland Stradnoden Co Monaghan. He was 28 years old, and a Sergeant in 'L' Bty., Royal Artillery (RHA), British Army during the World War I when the following deed took place for which he was awarded the VC.

On 1 September 1914 at Nery, France, Sergeant Nelson helped to bring the guns into action - with an officer (Edward Kinder Bradbury) and a warrant officer (George Thomas Dorrell) - under heavy fire and in spite of being severely wounded. He remained with the guns until all the ammunition was expended, although he had been ordered to retire to cover.

He was killed in action at Lillers, France, on 8 April 1918.

He later achieved the rank of Major.

His Victoria Cross is displayed at the Imperial War Museum (London, England).
