CITIES FEEL SLIGHTED BY TRAVELLING VICTORIA CROSS MEDAL EXHIBIT

It's not often that people fight to see a collection of medals. An Australian politician is upset that a traveling exhibit of Victoria Cross medals isn't coming to his district. -Editor

Touring Victoria Cross medal exhibit LANE Cove MP Anthony Roberts has accused the State Government of being "asleep at the wheel" after Sydney missed out on the rare opportunity to host a touring exhibition of Victoria Cross medals.

He said the medals - a permanent fixture at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra - were being displayed around the country but NSW and Tasmania had missed out.

"It's important that we recognise and pay tribute to individuals who took this heroic action," he said.

The exhibition will be taken on a 10-month tour while the Australian War Memorial's Hall of Valour is being refurbished.

Mr Roberts said many people - particularly large families - were unable to drive to Canberra for the day, others could not afford it or were physically unable to get there.
