  • Victoria's Cross: the Untold Story of Britain's Highest Award for Bravery by Gary Mead, review: 'disturbing conclusions'

    The aptly named Ethel Grimwood was the wife of a British official in India who, after her husband was murdered by mutineers in 1891, led a column of Gurkhas out of a besieged British HQ, fighting off continual attacks until she was shot in the neck just as a relief force reached the column. Grimwood’s courage deserved the VC, suggests Mead, but she was awarded the obscure Red Cross award for saving lives. The same was true of Margot Turner, a British Army nurse, whose indomitable courage in the Japanese POW camps inspired the popular Eighties TV series Tenko. Imprisoned and beaten by the Japanese, she inspired fellow prisoners with her bravery - but although she was awarded the same Red Cross medal as Grimwood, she missed the VC, which Mead suggests her courage merited.
