Richmond Green Howards Museum has secured a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant to support improvements to its famous Medal Room

Richmond, North Yorkshire

The £40,000 is being used to create a new gallery space to display the museum’s collection of Victoria Crosses (VC) and George Crosses (GC).

Made possible by money raised by National Lottery players, the gallery will allow visitors to see each of the 14 Victoria Crosses which the museum has in its collection and the three George Crosses in great detail, as well as providing them with a wealth of information about the history of the awards, and the soldiers who earned them.
