HEROES OF WORLD WAR I
Of the many thousands who were rewarded for their bravery and heroism in this war, 628 were singled out for the highest award, the Victoria Cross. Of these nine were Cumbrians born and bred, whilst two more, born elsewhere had become residents of Cumbria by the time of the war.
The entries on list below each have a link to the citation for the award and further links to more of the story of that individual. If you would liketo contribute a biography of any of these heroes, plese contact us via the Contact Us page
