For Valour

A new exhibition of Victoria Cross paving stones was launched on Friday 16 May at the DLI Museum. Images from the launch can be seen on the Museum Friends' blog.

The seven paving stones for the men born within the present County Durham are on display along with related items. The exhibition also provides information about the three Durham Light Infantry VC winners who were born outside the county.

The exhibition is free (museum admission applies) and is open Wednesday to Sunday 10.30am - 4.00pm. It is also open on Bank Holidays and Tuesdays during school holidays.

The paving stones are on display in the Museum until they are permanently located in the birthplace of each Victoria Cross recipient, on the 100th anniversary of the action for which the honour was awarded.

You can find out more about these 10 men on the Durham at War website.
