          1. Canon Frederick Scott

          Padre of the 1st Division of the Canadian Corps and the confidant, friend and spiritual guide to many generals, officers and enlisted men during the war. Scott frequently went into the front line trenches to be near the soldiers who needed him the most. He was to find his own son's body on the battlefield

            2. Lieutenant general Ivan Kolev.


            Considered as the father of the Bulgarian cavalry. He was awarded with the German Iron Cross from field marshal Mackensen, who was a cavalryman himself, praised the actions of general Kolev as proof that the cavalry was still able to beat the infantry in the field in spite of the opposite opinion that prevailed among the prominent German cavalry commanders. Ivan Kolev was successful in numerous battles in the Eastern front against Cossacks, Serbians and Romanians in the conflicts of Kushtbunar, Dobrich, Kochmar, Kara Pelit, Kubadin, ect. With his brave and sensible actions he performed one of the most successful cavalry operations in the war.

              4.John 'Jack" Simpson Kirkpatric



              John 'Jack' Simpson Kirkpatrick (6 July 1892 – 19 May 1915), who served under the name John Simpson, was a stretcher bearer with the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) during the Gallipoli Campaign in World War I. After landing at Anzac Cove on 25 April 1915, he obtained a donkey and began carrying wounded British Empire soldiers from the frontline to the beach, for evacuation. He continued this work for three and a half weeks, often under fire, until he was killed. Simpson and his Donkey are a key part of the 'Anzac legend.'
