After reading Thomas Hope Floyd's "At Ypres with Best-Dunkley" what became of Lt Colonel Best-Dunkley's V.C. Is it in private or public ownership??
Also T.H.F mentions says sometime afterwards a photo entitled "Daddy's V.C." of a little baby being held in his mothers arms at Buckingham Palace while King George Vth pinned upon his frock the Victoria Cross, but doesn't mention the illustrated paper it was in.
Does anyione know which paper it was in??
Have recently read this book and found it particularly interesting.
I'm off to the salient in a fortnight and part of the trip is to visit the site of Fray Bentos tank, which is "Just across the road" from the site of Best-Dunkley's endeavours.
I got this book as a freebie ebook on the Gutenberg site. Have downloaded a few from there so far.
