Listed as a Civilian Surgeon on page 368 of MacKinnon & Shadbolt, yet does not rate a mention on Medal Roll for 1877-8-9.

Hi rai

Right or wrong ?
Wikipedia and Memorials to Valour lists John Frederick McCrea VC as born 2 April 1854, Saint Peter Port,
Guernsey. However Littlehand 's post below states he went to live with an Aunt there.

His medal is in Lord Ashcroft's collection.

Also see: Littlehand's post - John Frederick McCrea, Wed July 27, 2011 at 8:59pm.

Hi Eddie and all,
I only went by what was on the findagrave write up, which states he was born in India, however the 1871 census does have him living in Guernsey, but place of birth as India again.
Interesting???????
