The members of the Victoria Cross and George Cross Association were really delighted to hear of this award and are very grateful for it. Since 2003, through the Association, the living holders of the two awards have supported the restoration of the graves of Victoria Cross and George Cross recipients and the creation as well as restoration of memorials in honour of the valour and sacrifice of those who have served their country and fellow man. Over the years they have supported the restoration and or creation of approximately 65 graves and memorials, as well as given advice and established links between interested parties to enable the funding of and work on many others.
