SERVICES - VICTORIA CROSSES



LIEUTENANT GORDON MURIEL FLOWERDEW VC (1894-99) - Awarded VC for cavalry charge in March 1918, in France, from which he died of his wounds the following day. This was thought to have been the last cavalry charge in military history, but this now seems to have been at Lessines right at the time of the Armistice on 11 November 1918. Nine of his brothers also went to the College, which must be something of a record.

LANCE CORPORAL WILLIAM HENRY HEWITT VC (1894-1900) - Awarded VC for attack on pillbox in September 1917. He died in 1966 in Cheltenham, UK; ashes scattered at sea off Cape Town, South Africa.

CAPTAIN AUGUSTUS (GUS) WILLINGTON SHELTON AGAR VC DSO RN (1902-03) - Awarded VC for attack on Russian navy in June 1919 at Kronstadt, Russia. Went on to write a number of books on his Navy experiences. Died in 1968.
