Lance Corporal George Onions
Devonshire Regiment
22nd August 1918

The Bilston lad and one private found themselves outnumbered and outgunned in northern France. A 250 troop of Germans approached their trench, but instead of retreating the two stood their ground and opened fire. The Germans surrendered and they marched them into captivity.
