SunFM (Co. Durham): "Village’s Navy Hero Remembered With Victoria Cross Memorial"

soleil

War Hero
"A First World War navy hero, who was killed on his birthday, will be honoured with a memorial in the village where he was born.

Lieutenant commander George Bradford – one of the famous Fighting Bradford brothers – was awarded a Victoria Cross for his bravery after being killed storming the Belgian port of Zeebrugge on St George’s Day 1918.

Now 100 years on he is to be commemorated in the memorial garden at Witton Park, alongside his brother and fellow VC recipient Roland, the youngest general in British Army history.

...

As part of efforts to see all of County Durham’s First World War Victoria Cross heroes commemorated, a memorial stone for George will be placed in Witton Park on April 21 2018."
