Victoria Cross Heroes in Action 1970
Bassett Military & Armed Forces Victoria Cross Heroes in Action 1970 Victoria Cross Heroes in Action 1970 25 - This series starts with the history of the award before going on via the Indian Mutiny, Boer War and World War I, but most of the cards feature incidents from the 2nd World War such as the raid on St. Nazaire, the attacks on Bismarck, Tirpitz and Scharnhorst, the attempt to assassinate Rommel and the Dambusters raid on the Ruhr dams. The fronts contain colour depictions of the action whilst the backs give appropriate information. As the first card says this “inexpensive little bronze cross is the highest award for courage that Britain bestows on those who have earned it” and boy did they earn it - many paying the ultimate price. This set was also produced with the title in white print on black and an album was originally issued to accompany this. A worthy set with cards size 65 x 35mm.
