SPINK TO DISPLAY LORD ASHCROFT EXHIBIT OF VICTORIA CROSS MEDALS

[Part of the reward for the return of the medals was
fronted by Lord Ashcroft, the leading collectors of Victoria
Crosses.  Part of Ashcroft's collection will be displayed
in London later this year. The following is taken from a
press release issued by Spink. -Editor]

Spink, in association with the Ashcroft V.C. Trust, is
proud to announce that they will be hosting an exhibition
of fifty Victoria Crosses from the most important collection
of these Awards ever formed.

Britain’s largest display of the world’s highest and most
prestigious Decoration for Gallantry for over half a century
will be open to the General Public in Spink’s Main Gallery,
16th-25th April 2008. The Exhibition features Crosses,
together with how they were won, from the Crimean War to
the Second World War, encompassing 15 different armed conflicts.

Lord Ashcroft stated, “I am delighted to be co-operating
with Spink, the world’s oldest medal dealers, by loaning
them a selection of Victoria Crosses for their forthcoming
exhibition in April. It is anticipated that the entire
collection will be available for permanent public display
in 2010 but, in the meantime, I hope that this Spink
exhibition will provide a worthy foretaste of my aim to
celebrate and commemorate ‘the bravest of the brave’
from our history.”
