Victoria Cross Trust

The Victoria Cross is the highest military decoration that can be awarded for valour "in the face of the enemy" to members of the armed forces. Yet all over the UK the graves and memorials to these men are under threat of loss. Through all parts of society people are unaware of these brave men and the sacrifices they made. We are determined to ensure that the proper respect and honour is given to the final resting places of these men and that their stories be told and not forgotten.
