    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Hi,
    That will be a great trip to take and see all those originals in one place. Did any of you see the documenary about the collection the pther day, it was presented by prince charles. And showed how they were won right back to when they were signed as medals by Queen Victoria. really good viewing.

    Is the metal used for the medals still from captured Russian cannons from the Crimean war?
