May 4, 1915
Not for the first time in the history of brave deeds has a footballer been specially complimented upon his bravery. Charles Hewitt, one time of the Albion, Middlesbrough, and Crystal Palace, wears a medal for a particularly brave deed – in fact, I believe he has also been presented with the Royal Humane Society’s medal.
These men do not advertise their deeds; and it was only by accident that I came across a brave deed on the part of a Liverpool half back – James Scott – who dived into a dock the other day and saved a woman from drowning.
James Scott was highly complimented and commended by the magistrate sitting at the Liverpool court proceedings. James, of Ayrshire, has our heartiest congratulations on his “fine save.”
