Reminder: Victoria Cross: citations for Commander John Edmund Comme... @ Mon 11 Oct 14:30 - 15:30 (On This Day)

Victoria Cross: citations for Commander John Edmund Commerell RN, and Quartermaster William Thomas Rickard, both of of HMS Weser (and a seaman), on 11 October 1855 in the Sea of Azov, went to destroy large quantities of forage on the shore of the Putrid Sea. After a difficult and dangerous journey they reached their objective - a magazine of corn - and managed to ignite the stacks, but the guards were alerted and immediately opened fire and gave chase. The pursuit was so hot that the men had difficulty in escaping, but they finally reached their ship and the lookouts later reported that the fodder store had burned to the ground.
