Remembered Today:

Boy 1st class Cornwell VC

Great sketch, Soren. Talking of sketches, this site claims that the picture of Jack Cornwell published in the Daily Sketch, on which your drawing is evidently based, was not of Jack but of his brother George, hurriedly kitted out in a naval uniform and with a 'Lancaster' rather than a 'Chester' cap tally: http://www.scouting.milestones.btinternet.co.uk/cornwell.htm

The person in the Daily Sketch pic is clearly younger and more boyish than the person in the other pics (presumably the real Jack Cornwell), who is more of a 'young man'.

Never mind, Soren — it's a cracking drawing of George Cornwell. :D
