A medal not an award

In my last post I insisted that the Victoria Cross medal is awarded not won.

However, this isn’t true. Many soldiers have set out with the express intention of winning a VC.

Take our old friend Thomas Henry Kavanagh, who was:

‘anxious to perform some service which would ensure to me the honour of wearing our Most Gracious Majesty’s Cross.’
