Good series, it's been running over the last couple of nights. Noel Chavasse RAMC on last night, VC and Bar. Unbelievable (but very true).

Gripping stuff, brought tears to my eyes when the 16 year old "Boy, first Class" was awarded his "for standing at his post whilst all the other lay dead around him". Buried in a grave without headstone as his mother could not afford one.

Later, when he was awarded a VC and the press at the time campaigned, ther disinterred him and buried him with full military honours and the event was filmed and distributed as news real around the country. It turns out that he the third youngest recipient of the award.
