Thomas Sage Henry VC

Thomas Henry Sage VC 1882 – 1845

Thomas Henry Sage VC was 34 years old, and a private in the 8th Battalion, The Somerset Light Infantry (Prince Albert’s), British Army during the First World War when the following deed took place for which he was awarded the Victoria Cross. On 4 October 1917 at Tower Hamlets Spur, east of Ypres, Belgium, Private Sage was in a shell-hole with eight other men, one of whom was shot while throwing a bomb which fell back into the shell-hole. Private Sage, with great presence of mind, immediately threw himself on it, and so saved the lives of several of his comrades, although he himself was severely wounded.
