Help , who is Andrew Mulligan

#1
There is an estate nearby me with street names belonging to Victoria Cross winners. I have enjoyed reading up on them. However one street bears the name Andrew Mulligan and I can not find any history of this person with a military back ground. Can any one enlighten me please ?.

If that's Andrew Mulligan Close, Stoke on Trent...then it is named after a local politician. Yes, hugely disappointing I know.

don't ask me, why would Stoke on Trent celebrate Robbie Williams as its most distinguished former citizen if they have three VCs and councillor Mulligan to fall back upon?? :lol:

Well that would deserve a VC in itself...all those bottles of Bushmills to carry, all that hate-mail to sift through and the state of his underpants after each "Walt outing" on the Arrse...in fact he deserves a bar.

The VCs on the estate were from Staffordshire not Stoke on Trent. We do have a VC winner L/Sgt J Baskeyfield. There is a briliant statue of him at Festival Hights. Reginald Mitchell also came from Stoke on Trent but on a sinking note Capt Smith the captain of the Titanic also hails from these parts.

Sergeant Andrew Mulligan was in the Grenadier Guards and was awarded the military medal which was presented by Field Marshall Montgomery. This was for driving his tank through the German town of Goch during ww2 and silencing a line of enemy guns. A framed photo and his citation were given to St Josephs Primary school, Goldenhill which he attended. I know this as fact as he is my wife's Grandad and she has his medals at home . Hope this helps you.

Toby, Thanks for replying to this very old thread. The reason I never picked up on this is I only searched for VC winners. I will now do some more research
