Some of Surrey’s most highly decorated First World War heroes are to be honoured in a new memorial.

Five men from the county who were awarded the Victoria Cross (VC), the highest military honour for bravery, are among 64 VC recipients whose names are included in the memorial at the Freemasons’ Hall in London.

All were members of the Freemasons, which commissioned the memorial to mark this year’s 300th anniversary of The United Grand Lodge of England and the centenary of the end of the Great War in 2018.

Commemorative stones bearing their names have been laid outside the hall in Covent Garden. They will be unveiled by the Duke of Kent in a ceremony on Tuesday April 25 2017.
