7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Men serving with the Green Howards were awarded 18 Victoria Crosses, but how are these valuable medals made, and by whom? What are they made from?

Engraving a Victoria Cross with the recipient’s name

What are the criteria governing the award of a Victoria Cross?

Has anyone ever earned more than one, or been stripped of their medal?

These, and a host of other questions surrounding Britain’s highest award for gallantry will be covered in this talk.

You will be also able to enjoy a visit to our newly improved Medal Room as part of this museum event.
