Edward Cooper

Biography:Edward Cooper (May 4, 1896 - August 19, 1985) was an English 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.

He was 21 years old, and a Sergeant in the 12th Bn., The King's Royal Rifle Corps, British Army during the First World War when the following deed took place for which he was awarded the VC.

On 16 August 1917 at Langemarck, Belgium, enemy machine-guns from a concrete blockhouse 250 yards away were holding up the advance of the battalion on the left and also causing heavy casualties to Sergeant Cooper's own battalion. With four men he rushed towards the blockhouse, but although they fired at the garrison at very close range (100 yards) the machine-guns were not silenced, so Sergeant Cooper ran straight at them and fired his revolver into an opening in blockhouse. The machine-guns ceased firing and the garrison surrendered. Seven machine-guns and 45 prisoners were captured.

He later achieved the rank of Major. His medal is (possibly) held at Stockton and Preston Museum.
