PostSubject: Lord Ashcroft strikes again   Lord Ashcroft strikes again EmptyThu Jul 03, 2014 7:59 am

Lieutenant John Duncan Grant (left) was given the medal (middle right) in 1905. He was sent to Tibet to negotiate with the Dalai Lama, but, in order to reach his destination, he had to breach a formidable fort (top right) with a group of Gurkha soldiers. He was shot and wounded during a 'fracas', but survived, and returned home to receive the honour a year later. The medal was sold to billionaire Lord Ashcroft for £408,000 (bottom right), who holds the world’s biggest collection of Victoria Cross medals estimated to be worth £40 million.

Must admit when I saw the headline I thought 90th had been delving into the piggy bank again.  No
