Lance Corporal Croucher, GC

Many congratulations to Lance-Corporal Matthew Croucher, Royal Marines, for the heroic deed he performed and the award of the George Cross.

Instituted in 1940 by HM King George VI, the George Cross was established to acknowledge extreme and outstanding gallantry; it is next in seniority to the Victoria Cross.

The GC is very sparingly given and there are twenty living recipients presently.
