GALLIPOLI PORTRAITS

Posted on April 29, 2013 at 4:33 AM Comments comments (0)
Well Anzac Day for 2013 is over, many medals have been aired, stories have been told, old mates have reminisced, those lost have been remembered widely and families and friends have gathered.
The crowds for the dawn service reached record numbers -

However in this web log we are tracking the development of Recherché's very special and totally unique Limited Edition Centenary set of Victoria Cross recipients.

First off the production floor when all the research is done and the photography - currently being sourced through the National collection at the AWM - is ready, will be the frames set up for those  honoured as we know for valour "in the face of the enemy" at Gallipoli.

The Victoria Cross is the highest military decoration awarded and can be awarded to members of the armed forces within the Commonwealth countries or previous British Empire territories.

It is usually presented at an investiture held at Buckingham Palace and can be awarded to a person of any rank or any civilian under military command.
