I have found Charles Richard SHARPE (with an E) and he won his Victoria Cross on 9th May 1915 and not 9th April.
  Corporal 2nd Bn Lincolnshire Regiment Gazetted 29th June 1915.
  The VC is on show at Museum of Lincolnshire Life, Lincoln. He died 18th Feb 1963 at Workington Cumberland.  Memorial on grave at Newport Cemetery, Sleaford.
  It would have been during the Battle of Aubers Ridge 9 May 1915.
  In WW2 he was a CSM in Leicestershire Regiment.
