Joseph Malone

Joseph Malone VC (11 January 1833 -28 June 1883) 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.

VC action

He was 21 years old, and a sergeant in the 13th Light Dragoons (later 13th Hussars), British Army during the Crimean War when the following deed took place for which he was awarded the VC.

On 25 October 1854 at Balaclava, Crimea (Charge of the Light Brigade), Sergeant Malone, while returning on foot from the charge, in which his horse had been shot, stopped under very heavy fire and helped a troop sergeant-major (John Berryman) and other sergeant (John Farrell) to move a very severely wounded officer (who subsequently died) out of range of the guns.

Further details

Malone was from Eccles. He later transferred to the 6th Dragoons and in 1858 was commissioned as a Riding Master. In 1881, along with other Riding Masters, he was granted the honorary rank of Captain.

His Victoria Cross is displayed at the 13th/18th Royal Hussars Museum (Queen Mary's Own) "(Barnsley, South Yorkshire, England)".

He is the great-grandfather of British actress Sally Ann Howes.
