stevem49 Posted 12 October , 2013 Share Posted 12 October , 2013 I hope this is allowed and in the correct place (It is WW1 related) This morning the post arrived - a letter from Hazel Greaves, daughter of Fred VC. (Oct 4th 1917) Out fell a VC medal bar with a letter saying ' I would like you to have this miniature medal that my father wore when he did not were his VC medal' I am absolutely stunned. Hazel is a lovely lady who I met when writing the history of 9th Bn SF. We have kept in touch ever since with occasional visits and regular phone calls. The medal bar has a small VC on it - was this normal? Off to get a strong coffee! Steve M Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
