On a recent trip tp Barrow I took the opportunity to pay my respects to a very brave man. I also had a look at the archives in the local paper. I found this article and tried to make contact but unfortunately to no avail.

Some interesting Wassall connections from Ancestry.

Sam Wassall 1911 census living at 32 Lyon Street, includes VC in his signature.

Citation for Wassalls VC mentions Private Westwood, who he saved.

228 Pt. Thomas Westwood had a brother 294 Pt. James Westwood who was also with the 80th, here are their AZW medals. Both later lived in Swansea.

Nice one Frank.. you honoured him in a very Zulu fashion..
which i'm sure Wassall would have been chuffed about if he
had been aware of the custom in life..very touching.

Nice thread. Here is a Taddy and Co Cigarette card (Victoria Cross Heroes) from the early 1900's showing private Sam Wassall saving Private Westwood.  This card is in my collection.

Thanks Gents

Here is another one from that era. Nice to see that these brave men were recognised for their deeds back then.

Unfortunately this one is not in my collection.
