    Ha ha, the link is to a page called liverpoo.htm. I wonder how long before the website gets accused of being anti-Liverpool!?

    Anyway, thanks for the link, it's very interesting. Some of the early ones are from 150 years ago!

    Actually if I remember correctly, wasn't the first V.C. awarded during the Crimean War? So that sounds about right.

    Three men can claim to be the first VC in that elite list of recipients of the world’s highest award for outstanding gallantry. The name of Lieutenant Cecil Buckley RN was the first to be published in the London Gazette of 24 February, 1857 for his part in two exploits in the Sea of Azoff on 28 May, 1855. Due to his superior rank, Commander Henry Raby RN was the first man to physically receive the Cross at the inaugural investiture on 26 June, 1857. This was awarded for his part in bringing in a wounded soldier under fire during the abortive attack on the Redan , 18 June, 1855.
