Thomas08 Posted 14 October , 2013 Share Posted 14 October , 2013 My grandfather Captain Godwin Banwell served with the 1/5th Leicestershire Regiment. He was awarded the Military Cross and Bar. According to family folklore he was recommended for the Victoria Cross. Can anyone explain 1. Who approved the awarding of medals? 2. Was there any guidance as to how an act of bravery should be graded? For example the difference between an award of Military Cross and Victoria Cross. 3. Regarding the folklore part of this question if my grandfather had been recommended for the Victoria Cross would there be any record of this?
