Tommy Ricketts was a soldier in the Royal Newfoundland Regiment during World War 1. On October 14, 1918 he became the youngest combatant to be awarded the Victoria Cross.

I called the picture "The First Newfie?" to highlight the fact that settlement in Newfoundland goes back a thousand years, longer than anywhere else in North America.
