WWI hero’s Victoria Cross up for auction
By Dea Clarke
“Months after the record-breaking sale of a rare Victoria Cross, another one has come up for auction. Lance Corporal Bernard Sidney Gordon’s grand-daughter is reluctantly selling his medal to help provide for her extended family.
…Lance Corporal Gordon’s VC is one of just 65 awarded to Australian World War I veterans.
The medals rarely come up for sale, but Lance Corporal Gordon’ is the second to be offered this year.”
