Lt Col Ernest Alexander: Commemorative stone for Liverpool W

A commemorative stone for one of the first recipients of the Victoria Cross medals has been unveiled, marking 100 years of receiving the honour.

Lt Col Ernest Alexander, from Princes Park, Liverpool, was given the award for his bravery rescuing a wounded soldier under heavy fire in 1914.

The 63-year-old 119th battery of the Royal Field Artillery soldier fought in Belgium during World War One.

The paving stone was unveiled at Sunburst Gates at Princes Park earlier.

Lt Col Alexander was also awarded the Companion of the Order of the Bath, the Companion of St. Michael and St. George, and the Belgian Croix de Guerre. Forum Index -> Liverpool News & Chat
