[Listed as Frederick George on SDGW and CWGC] Private 21654, 4th Battalion, WOrcestershire Regiment. Killed in action, near Masnieres, France 30th November 1917. Born and enlisted Worcester. Awarded the Victoria Cross (V.C.)

On 9 October 1917 at Boesinghe Sector, Belgium, after the first objective had been captured, work was considerably hampered by an enemy machine-gun firing from a concrete emplacement. Private Dancox who was one of a party of 10 detailed as moppers-up, managed to work his way through the barrage and entered the 'pill box' from the rear, threatening the garrison with a Mills bomb. Shortly afterwards he reappeared with a machine-gun under his arm and about 40 of the enemy. He brought the gun back to our position and kept it in action throughout the day. See the Chapter-One web site for further details.
