The Victoria Cross (VC) is the highest military decoration awarded for valour “in the presence of the enemy” to members of the armed forces. The George Cross (GC) is awarded to those who have displayed the greatest heroism or the most conspicuous courage whilst in extreme danger and is given both to civilians and to military personnel for non-operational gallantry, or for gallantry not in the presence of the enemy.
The Union Jack Club’s VC & GC Roll of Honour is a unique and complete display that names all recipients, with a book of remembrance opened each day of the year, and large collection of accompanying photos and portraits. The display is a source of great pride to Club members and visitors who are reminded of the extraordinary acts of bravery and sacrifice of British and Commonwealth military and civilian personnel - in order that we may be safe and free.
