Reporter: Jarrod Watt Friday, 3 October 2003 Red Cross Victoria chair Richard Stone accepts the first of the new PCs from IBM's state manager for Victoria, Michael McMahon. Hear how the Red Cross is to receive over a dozen new computers with thanks to volunteers who worked during the Canberra bushfire crisis. In the thick of the Canberra bushfires a couple of Red Cross volunteers on another 12-hour shift trying to reunite or locate friends and relatives came to one basic conclusion: there had to be a better way. "[During the Canberra fires] we were asked by the police to start up the state inquiry centre on behalf of the ACT, and over a period of about 5-7 days we received some ten thousand phone calls, and we registered some 4,000 people who had been evacuated from their homes. It was a huge operation," says Richard Stone, chair of the Victorian branch of the Red Cross.

The original inscription on the cross was "FOR BRAVERY" but this was amended to "FOR VALOUR" on the recommendation of Queen Victoria who thought some might erroneously consider that only medal winners were brave in battle. The VC was first issued on January 29 , recognising acts of valour during the Crimean War of . All VCs are cast from the bronze of two Chinese cannons that were reputedly captured from the Russians at the of siege of Sevastopol . Some historians doubt the cannon were at Sevastopol.

Updated - Sunday, 23 February, 2003 The Victoria Cross was - and remains to the present day - the highest British military award for gallantry, awarded for "most conspicuous bravery, a daring or pre-eminent act of valour, self sacrifice or extreme devotion to duty in the presence of the enemy". Established during Queen Victoria's reign in February 1856 some 633 Victoria Crosses (known as the V.C.) were awarded during the First World War. Two of these comprised Bars - that is, an award of a second Victoria Cross to a current holder: to Arthur Martin-Leake in 1914 and Noel Chavasse in 1917 respectively. Of these Chavasse earned both V.C.s during the First World War, although the second was posthumously awarded. Of the 633 V.C.s awarded during the First World War 187 were issued posthumously to men killed during their act of heroism. Prior to the outbreak of war in 1914 522 V.C.s had been awarded; by contrast just 182 were issued during the Second World War. There are two instances of the Victoria Cross being awarded to father and son (although never during the same conflict). No woman has ever been awarded the V.C.

World War Two, saving private ryan, Second World War, W.W.II [bottom] The Victoria Cross: Victoria Cross   The Victoria Cross was instituted in 1856, but was made retroactive to the autumn of 1854 to cover the period of the Crimean War. In fact, one of the first Victoria Crosses awarded was to a Canadian, Lieutenant Alexander Roberts Dunn, who won his Victoria Cross during the charge of the Light Brigade on 25 October, 1854 at Balaclava. The Cross was created to recognize very outstanding deeds of gallantry in the presence of the enemy. It was to consist of a Maltese Cross (in fact, a cross paté) of bronze made from the metal from one of the Russian guns captured at Sebastopol, with the Royal Crest in the centre and underneath a scroll bearing the words "For Valour". On the reverse side of the cross is engraved the date of the act of bravery, while the name of the recipient is engraved on the back of the clasp. At first the ribbon was blue for the Navy and red for the Army, but by a Royal Warrant of 22 May, 1920, signed by the secretary of State for War, Winston Churchill, "the ribbon is red for all services and when it only is worn, a small replica of the cross is fixed in the centre".

A Series of Informational Articles
Edited by Stephen Herold
The foundation of the Victoria Cross by Queen Victoria in 1856 marked the recognition by hitherto aristocratic governments of the value of the brave fulfillment of duty by ordinary soldiers. As such it is a significant social as well as military event. Given only for the most conspicuous gallantry, it remains perhaps the most prestigious and valued decoration for exceptional service in the service of country. The following articles present the history of this decoration up to the beginning of the First World War.

17. The Blue Cross Animals Society Of Victoria
Since its early beginnings almost 50 years ago, the Blue Cross has carried out vital work to bring relief to all kinds of animals found abandoned, injured, starving or neglected by their owners. It operates a 'no kill' shelter.
Our Shelter Is Under Threat of Closure This is a report on a metting i had with Mr John McCrory representing the Minister of Agriculture, and Mr Malcome Scheele representing the City of Manningham Local Laws, under whose jurisdiction the Blue Cross now operates. Under the new Code of Practive for Animal Shelters, minimum standards have been set for accomodating animals, and this is a step in the right direction, but therecommended minimum size for dog pens of twenty-four square feet or 8 feet by 3 feet, is disgusting. At Blue Cross our kittens have much bigger pens than this. The Code of Practice was drwn up on the recommendation of the MAJOR animal welfare shelters, i.e. RSPCA and Lost Dogs Home, and from their point of view is a giant step forward. it ensures that dogs will have a minimum space, will have hygienic conditions and will have protection from the elements. This is exactly what is said about battery farmed hens and this act is treating welfare shelter dogs in the same manner. The likely outlook for them will be the mandatory eight days in cramped quarters whichs erve as their bedroom, recreation area and toilet, and then, unless they are among the lucky very few who are re-homed, join the queue for euthanising. When the Code of Practice was drwan up, no consideration was given to Blue Cross - the only shelter which houses its dogs in comfortable, clean kennels at night and allows them to spend their days in spacious outdoor exercise areas with a compatible canine companion. In fact, no provision was made for exercising the dogs apart form a consolation ten minutes per day under human supervision, and with no other dogs. On no account are welfare dogs allowed to socialise or mix with other dogs!
