Oakley 100th Anniversary Victoria Cross Commemoration – Full Ceremony

CSM Edward Brooks VC was born in Oakley and awarded the Victoria Cross for his action at Fayet, near Saint-Quentin, France on 28 April 1917 where he single-handedly killed two German gunners and captured their machine gun, preventing many casualties.

A government-led initiative aims to provide a lasting legacy of Victoria Cross recipients from the First World War, with the laying of a paving stone in the birth place of each of the 454 men.

This is the FULL ceremony that took place in Oakley on Friday 28th April 2017… 100 year on.
