Victoria Cross

Lieutenant Gordon Muriel Flowerdew VC (1894-1899)

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. In 2018 major celebrations were held in Canada, France and Norfolk to mark the centenary.
