Reminder: Victoria Cross: Nov 5, 1854 at the Battle of Inkerman, Co... @ Fri 5 Nov 18:30 - 19:00 (On This Day)

Victoria Cross: Nov 5, 1854 at the Battle of Inkerman, Corporal John Prettyjohns, RMLI. His platoon went to clear out some caves which were occupied by snipers. In doing so they used up almost all of their ammunition, and then noticed fresh parties of Russians creeping up the hill in single file. Corporal Prettyjohn gave instructions to his men to collect as many stones as possible which they could use instead of ammunition. When the first Russian appeared he was seized by the corporal and thrown down the slope. The others were greeted by a hail of stones and retreated.
