This exhibition displays personal objects and artefacts belonging to those awarded Victoria and George Crosses, revealing the people behind the medals and the stories of their lives and their extraordinary deeds.
Objects on display include the extensively damaged backpack worn by Lance Corporal Matt Croucher GC, who in Afghanistan 2008, threw himself onto a grenade saving the lives of his comrades- the backpack also helped to save his own life. You can also see the diving suit worn by James Magennis VC, who left his submarine in order to free explosive charges that had got caught during an attack on a Japanese boat in 1945.
