Ernest James Scott
Ernest James Scott, OBE, MC (1897–1985) was a British Army officer who was awarded the Military Cross in 1918 when he was a second lieutenant with the Bedfordshire Regiment. The citation reads:
- For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. When after a successful counter-attack his battalion was for a considerable time in a precarious position with both flanks exposed, he displayed great powers of leadership, constantly going round and encouraging the men under heavy fire until he was wounded. It was largely due to his efforts that the front line was held intact.
Scott was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the 1960 New Year Honours for services to water polo.
