Reminder: Victoria Cross: July 15, 1855, Boatswain's Mate John Shep... @ Sun 15 Jul 13:00 - 14:00 (On This Day)

Victoria Cross: July 15, 1855, Boatswain's Mate John Sheppard went into Sevastopol harbour at night, in a Punt (boat) which he had especially constructed for the purpose, with an explosive device with which he intended to blow up one of the Russian warships. He managed to get past the enemy's steamboats at the entrance of Careening Bay, but was prevented from getting further by a long string of boats carrying enemy troops. He made a second attempt on 16 August but although both these actions were unsuccessful, they were boldly conceived and carried out in the face of great danger.
