For Valour

Durham's World War One Sodliers Awarded the Victoria Cross

This exhibition remembers and commemorates the great acts of heroism of ten men who were born in County Durham or served with the Durham Light Infantry and received the Victoria Cross for their actions during the First World War. All ten men performed extraordinary acts of courage, risking, and in many cases losing, their own lives in the process.

The Victoria Cross is the highest military decoration awarded for valour "in the face of the enemy". It is the only award that can be made to any rank. In this exhibition you will be able to discover the extraordinary stories that led to its presentation to these men of Durham.
