Did anybody notice that just behind Charles there appeared to be a medal mounted to the Right of th VC, as if it took precedence? Something I twigged in the the first instance.

These stories are utterly humbling.

You know,it amazes me just watching it,just how much times have changed.The footage of the crowds outside Buck House,waiting to greet the Lads as they emerge from meeting the Boss,Them being treated like national heroes by the crowds.
Sadly,it's tw@s like Beckham who get that reception now.But these lads are more than just 'heroe's,These lads were preparred to lay down their own life for their mates.
Thank you Sirs.

Sir, c5's listings tonight are a breath of fresh air. I have no airborne connections but a bridge too far always hits the spot. One word quality.
VC's -excellent but why no coverage from mainstream channels

Simple.....Because C5 are trying (and winning!) to attract the more intellectual viewer whereas the 'mainstream' channels are trying (and winning ) the chav viewer who lives on a diet of 'reality' tv,burgers & alco-pops!

I was told by a former crab friend that all ranks have to salute the holder of a VC regardless of the wearers rank. Is this true?
