    True
    however the 'Victorian heros' , who cut their way out of disaster are often described in more modern texts as only carrying the colour to cover their 'running' away, not so much VC hero's as cowards.

    Didn't think it worth a new thread as related to this topic.

      You have to remember that the average Victorian Officer was not like modern officers. When Napoleon III's son was killed in South Africa, while staging a picnic near some Zulus, the officer rode back to camp like the fiends of hell were after him. He had no idea what his men were doing as he outran them! He did not get censured until he got back to the UK. Queen Victoria was quite upset a foreign prince got himself killed in her service. That officer won a court martial but was ostracized.
