Since this award was instituted in 1854, only 1,354 have been awarded. A little, known fact, even to many "experts," is that the metal used to forge every Victoria Cross is tended by the 15th Regiment, Royal Logistic Corps in Donnington. The VC metal rarely sees the light of day as it is secured in special vaults and is removed only under exceptional circumstances; however, recently, this item of national history was transported to the Imperial War Museum in London for the royal opening of the Victoria Cross and George Cross Exhibition. The metal, weighing 358 ounces and looking somewhat like a lump of cheese is all that remains of the bronze cascabels from two Russian cannon captured at Sebastopol, the last great battle of the Crimean War in 1854-55. The cascabel is a large knob at the rear of the cannon. The two cannon, minus cascabels, stand proudly outside the Officers Mess in Woolwich. Items with no picture or description are ones I am still working on. I have 100+ VC autographs.

Victoria Cross to Captain Fegen Hero of H.M.S. Jervis Bay, Lost with Ship, is Honored. London, Nov. 17 - (C.P.) - A sturdy Irish captain - Fogarty Fegen - who went down with his ship, H.M.S. Jervis Bay, her guns blazing and her colors flying, was awarded the Victoria Cross posthumously yesterday. The Jervis Bay was sunk Nov. 5 as she challenged a powerful German raider in the mid-Atlantic. The "suicide" stand of the armed merchant cruiser allowed at least 33 of 38 ships in the convoy to escape. The Admiralty announced that four ships were sunk by the raider and that one other ship still was unaccounted for. Another ship also escaped from the raider but later fell victim to enemy aircraft. Captain Fegen, 49, went to his death maintaining the great traditions of the Royal Navy. During the First Great War he served as a lieutenant and later was in command of the destroyers

The highest medals awarded for bravery were the Victoria Cross and theGeorge Cross. These recipients. Victoria Cross, The Victoria Cross.
Cross Recipients Countless acts of bravery and heroism went unnoticed or unrecorded during the World Wars. Where outstanding acts of courage were witnessed and documented, the individuals were honoured by the Commonwealth for their acts of heroism and bravery by several kinds of military medals. The highest medals awarded for bravery were the Victoria Cross and the George Cross. These medals are described below, followed by the stories of some of Canada's Victoria Cross and George Cross recipients.
The Victoria Cross
The Victoria Cross, instituted in 1856 by Queen Victoria, is the premiere Commonwealth decoration for heroism in combat. It is awarded in recognition of conspicuous bravery in the presence of the enemy. The decoration, in the form of a bronze cross whose four arms become much wider as they extend from the center, bears the Royal Crest and the words "For Valour." It is suspended from a dark crimson ribbon. Since a Canadian, Lieutenant Alexander Roberts Dunn, won the Victoria Cross in the charge of the Light Brigade during the Crimean War, ninety-three Canadians have received the award, sixty-nine of them in the First World War and sixteen in the Second World War. The Victoria Cross could not be awarded to a civilian. However, during the aerial bombing on Britain early in World War Two, it soon became obvious that citizens should be rewarded for their numerous acts of conspicuous bravery. In response, King George VI established the George Cross in 1940. It is awarded in recognition of extraordinary acts of bravery by civilian or military personnel.

By Alexander G. Higgins of the Associated Press. Red Cross: Iraqi Abuse Widespread, Routine Monday May 10, 2004 10:16 PM By ALEXANDER G. HIGGINS Associated Press Writer GENEVA (AP) - Up to 90 percent of Iraqi detainees were arrested by mistake, according to coalition intelligence officers cited in a Red Cross report disclosed Monday. It also said U.S. officers mistreated inmates at the notorious Abu Ghraib prison by keeping them naked in totally dark, empty cells. While many detainees were quickly released or no longer mistreated after interrogation, high-ranking officials in Saddam Hussein's government - including those listed on the U.S. military's deck of cards - were held for months in solitary confinement, The Associated Press has learned.

Winning the Victoria Cross
Rudyard Kipling
T HE HISTORY of the Victoria Cross has been told so often that it is only necessary to say that the Order was created by Queen Victoria on January 29th, 1856, in the year of the peace with Russia, when the new racing Cunard paddle-steamer Persia of three thousand tons was making thirteen knots between England and America, and all the world wondered at the advance of civilization and progress. There are many kinds of bravery, and if one looks through the records of the four hundred and eleven men, living and dead, that have held the Victoria Cross before the Great War, one finds instances of every imaginable variety of heroism. There is bravery in the early morning, when it takes great courage even to leave warm blankets, let alone walk into dirt, cold and death; on foot and on horse; empty or fed; sick or well; coolness of brain that thinks out a plan at dawn and holds to it all through the long, murderous day bravery of the mind that makes the jerking nerves hold still and do nothing except show a good example ; sheer reckless strength that hacks through a crowd of amazed men and comes out grinning on the other side; enduring spirit that wears through a long siege, never losing heart or manners or temper; quick, flashing bravery that heaves a lighted shell overboard or rushes the stockade while others are gaping at it; and the calculated craftsmanship that camps alone before the angry rifle-pit or shell-hole, and cleanly and methodically wipes out every soul in it.

The Victoria Cross Of all the orders and decorations open to members of the Australian Defence Force, the Victoria Cross remains the most honoured, the most coveted. It marks its wearer as one possessing supreme courage, a disregard for danger and complete devotion to duty. The Victoria Cross (VC) was instituted on 29 January 1856 and was made retrospective from 1 August 1854. Prior to the Crimean War, there was no recognised gallantry medal, but the individual deeds in that war made the creation of such an award, available to officers and men alike, necessary. The Victoria Cross, according to the Instituting Royal Warrant establishing rules and ordinances governing its bestowal, shall only be awarded for the most conspicuous bravery or some daring or pre-eminent act of valour or self-sacrifice or extreme devotion to duty in the presence of the enemy. In the Commonwealth of Australia Gazette No. 525 Monday 4 February 1991, the Victoria Cross took its place as the highest Australian award in the Australian System of Honours and Awards. It may be awarded to members of the Defence Force or other persons determined by the Minister of State for Defence. Bars are awarded for further similar acts of bravery. The Victoria Cross may also be awarded posthumously and recipients are entitled to use the letters VC after their names.

Mr Jackson left the medal to his wife A Victoria Cross awarded to an airman who climbed onto a Lancaster bomber's wing at 20,000ft to put out a fire has sold for a record price.
It went for £235,250 at the Spink auction house in London on Friday, smashing the old record for a VC of £178,250. The medal belonged to Norman Jackson, from Ealing, west London, who was a warrant officer. It was bought by a private collector and will stay in the country. Spink's executive director Paul Barthaud said: "It is particularly rare because it is an RAF medal and it has a particularly touching history. It was Boy's Own stuff." Mr Jackson was 25 when his crew came under fire from a German fighter on a bombing raid on the town of Schweinfurt in April 1944. Mr Jackson survived a 20,000ft fall He climbed out of the cockpit into a slipstream to try to put out the flames, before falling off and crashing to the ground under a burning parachute. Despite serious injuries, he managed to crawl to a nearby German village and spent 10 months in hospital before being transferred to a prisoner of war (POW) camp.
