Acts of Courage - Register of the George Medal 1940 - 2015 by Phil McDermott

Phil McDermott, the League Archivist for many years is just about to publish the register of the George Medal, a work that has taken many years of research to compile. It includes all known awards of the medal up to 2015.  This is a huge piece of work and updates the previous work on the medal, "Dragons can be Defeated by Don Henderson.  Phil has agreed that all profit from the work will be donated to the Gallantry Medallists' League, as he did with his previous work the Register of the Distinguished Conduct Medal. 

Shipping will commence on October however Phil has agreed that members can pre-order this book with a 15% discount. A hardback edition will therefore cost members £42.50 and the paperback edition will cost members £38.25.  Any member wishing to pre-order can do so by contacting Phil's shop on 01527 835375.
