Welcome back to Season 5 of the podcast!
In this first episode, we meet five remarkable men, Maurice Dease, Hugo Throssell, Noel Chavasse, Phillip Konowal, and Martin Doyle. They all came from very different backgrounds, different countries, and different regiments; their lives took very different paths to each other, but each of them was awarded a Victoria Cross (in Chavasse's case, twice) during the Great War.
We hear stories of remarkable bravery, humility, danger, and great personal tragedy as we look at a VC winner from each year of the War from 1914 through to 1918.
