Mons Canal Railway Bridge, August 1914 by David Rowlands. Lieutenant Maurice Dease and Fusilier Frank Godley, Battalion Royal Fusiliers, in the action that saw them awarded the first two Victoria Crosses of the Great War.
The Battle of the Somme, 1916 - "Private Short, a bomber with the 8th Yorkshires, was wounded in the leg during an attack on Torr Trench. Although told to return for treatment he remained in the trench and was hit, again in the leg, by shrapnel. Propped against the trench wall he insisted on preparing Mills Bombs until the attack succeeded. Short died before he could be taken to an R.A.P. He was awarded the Victoria Cross." Art by Rob Chapman
