    Default Violette Szabo's SOE Medal group

    Morning all, I have just seen on the news that Violette Szabo's George Cross medal grouping is being put up for auction this week by her daughter. Her daughter sadly has no family to pass these awards down to, so now feels the time is right to let them go as she is in her 80's.
    A fine grouping to an exceptionally brave SOE agent.

    Very likely Ned, I just hope they stay in this country on public display somewhere. Leon.
