For Sale: St. George Cross, part-worn. Ah well...


Recommended Posts

The George Cross is awarded to civilians for outstanding acts of bravery. It is not specifically a World War II medal (although the entire island of Malta was awarded the medal for the hardships it endured in the 1941-42 period). I know in 1968 a BOAC stewardess was awarded this medal posthumously for repeatedly going back into a burning Boeing 707 to try and save trapped passengers.
