Re: Noel Cavasse VC and Bar MC RAMC

For years there has been a faded photo of Captain CHavasse hanging in the clubhouse of LSH (Liverpool St Helens) but it was only recently that I realised its significance. We've been given a lottery grant to research the club's history and this item has come up.

Incidentally there is a photo of six stretcher bearers, with the mud half-way up their puttees - but I don't expect they got a VC.
