Victoria Cross Medal, Collections

Victoria Cross Medal

The Victoria Cross (VC) is the highest military decoration awarded for valour "in the face of the enemy" to members of British, Commonwealth and Empire armed forces. The Lancashire Fusiliers have been awarded nineteen VCs, eighteen of which were awarded in the First World War, more than any other regiment in that conflict. The Fusilier Museum holds seven VCs as part of its medal collection, including two of the six awarded "before breakfast" to the 1st Battalion at Gallipoli in 1915.
