In loving memory of the Revd. J.W. ADAMS M.A. V.C. Chaplain in Ordinary to HM the king and for a short time Rector of this Parish. Born Nov. 24th 1839 ~ Died Oct. 20th 1903 Late Chaplain to the kabul Field Force, Bengal Ecclesiastical Establishment During the action at Killa Kazi, on the 11th December 1879, some men of the 9th Lancers having fallen, with their horses, into a wide and deep nullah, or ditch, and the enemy being close upon them, the Reverand J.W. Adams rushed into the water which filled the ditch, dragged the horses from off the men, upon whom they were lying, and extracted them, he being at the time under a heavy fire and up to his waist in water. At this time the Afghans were pressing on very rapidly, the leading men getting within a few yards of Mr. Adams, who having let go his horse in order to render more effectual assistance, had eventually to escape on foot. The London Gazette 26th August 1881

Reverend James William Adams M.A. V.C.
