Are there any Victoria AND George Cross recipients?

. . . except that that is not quite correct.

James Carne was universally known as 'Fred' (a corruption of Fred Karno) and his VC was awarded to him in his own right-his LG citation:

Reading the citation is electrifying, what extraordinary courage, I was in the ACF of the Glosters at the time, I also remember when he came home after his release from POW camp, he marched through Gloucester having received the freedom of the city, he was a shadow of a man but his bearing was still upright and military.
