Here is Jeremy Clarkson, explaining to you all the details of the Victoria Cross, the highest military award of the British common wealth. Enjoy

Its very rare to get the VC, around a hundred odd have been handed out since it was invented
User avatar #161 to #3 - voltkills (06/14/2014) [-]
the top is usually for saving others lives, like running into open fire to drag a wounded solider back.
User avatar #183 to #3 - gokombwantu (06/14/2014) [-]
Also the VC is the highest military honour in the world.
Not just British commonwealth personal can earn it, several americans have received it for instance.
#46 to #3 - fcrocker (06/13/2014) [-]
The highest (Victoria Cross) is reserved for doing something completely selfless to safe other people, like throwing yourself over a grenade. Whilst this was ******* badass, he was merely fighting for his own survival.
#153 to #3 - anon (06/14/2014) [-]
A metal? A meTal?? A METAL?

**** you for being a retard.
User avatar #12 to #3 - dangler ONLINE (06/13/2014) [-]
In Britain, I think you have to be dead to get the highest.. I could be entirely wrong, but it makes sense, right?
User avatar #13 to #12 - sciencexplain (06/13/2014) [-]
The highest medal, if I remember rightly from what my Granddad told me, is the Victoria Cross. It is awarded for "most conspicuous bravery, or some daring or pre-eminent act of valour or self-sacrifice, or extreme devotion to duty in the presence of the enemy." From that, I would assume it's more of a pre-emptive action that averts the course of terrorism or violence before it happens, instead of during it occurring. Not sure, but it can certainly be awarded after death if the death was to save the lives of others.
User avatar #19 to #13 - biscuitsunited (06/13/2014) [-]
It's made from melted down Russians cannons captured during the Crimean war.
I don't think a single V.C has been handed out this side of the year 2000, It's such a high honour only one Pilot in WW2 was awarded one.
User avatar #47 to #19 - cryingchicken (06/13/2014) [-]
I don't wanna be "that guy" who unnecessarily correct people but I just thought you'd like to know that it was awarded three times since 2000. "The three awards given in the 21st century to British personnel have been for actions in the Afghanistan War and the Iraq War. On 18 March 2005, Lance Corporal (then Private) Johnson Beharry of the 1st Battalion, Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment became the first recipient of the VC since Sergeant Ian McKay in 1982.[18] One of the most recent awards of the Victoria Cross to a British service person was the posthumous award on 14 December 2006 to Corporal Bryan Budd of 3 Para. It was awarded for two separate acts of "inspirational leadership and the greatest valour" which led to his death, during actions against the Taliban in Afghanistan in July and August 2006.[76] Another Victoria Cross has been awarded in March 2013 to British Lance Corporal James Ashworth, who showed a courage "beyond words" during a fierce battle with the Taliban in Helmand's Nahr-e Saraj district, Afghanistan, and was fatally wounded as a result.[77]"

Well thanks, I did not know that.
I'd have thought any V.C's awarded would have been given to the highland regement that bayonet charged uphill and didn't loose any guys.
Thanks for the update
User avatar #102 to #49 - specialone (06/14/2014) [-]
It's the self-sacrifice bit which qualifies most people for it. That guy James Ashworth, from what I recall, was diverting enemy fire away from his wounded comrades by running from cover-to-cover - thereby making himself the main target.
#214 to #13 - fcrocker (06/14/2014) [-]
They are awarded for doing something extremely brave and self sacrificial to save the lives of others. For example throwing yourself over a grenade. That's why they're a mostly given out after death, but living people have been awarded them.
The reason the Gurkha didn't get one was he was fighting for his own survival.
User avatar #216 to #214 - sciencexplain (06/14/2014) [-]
Yeah, but they aren't handed out for jumping on grenades mostly, are they? I thought it was stuff that was really against the odds of your survival, because a fair few people who jump on grenades die from it, especially if they're flak armoured.
#218 to #216 - fcrocker (06/14/2014) [-]
Was just an example, like this dude www.bbc.co.uk/northernireland/yourplaceandmine/armagh/A766055.shtml got one for jumping on a crate of bombs that was about to blow up.
User avatar #219 to #218 - sciencexplain (06/14/2014) [-]
That's ******* valiant. I wonder sometimes if there are still any survivors alive from the Battle of the Somme.

well if they had given him the first highest medal, he would have leveled up.
User avatar #18 to #3 - gokombwantu (06/13/2014) [-]
thye tend to hand out the victoria cross less often because they are made from melted down russian cannons from when we beat them during the crimean war, as you can imagine that metal is running out so they tend to reserve it for extremely high honours
#79 to #18 - sonofthedeepsouth (06/14/2014) [-]
What are you saying is that he needed to die in order to get it?Right?!
#80 to #79 - sonofthedeepsouth (06/14/2014) [-]
No, wait found one that received it and it's alive en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnson_Beharry
User avatar #182 to #80 - gokombwantu (06/14/2014) [-]
this is the criteria for it to be earned "most conspicuous bravery, or some daring or pre-eminent act of valour or self-sacrifice, or extreme devotion to duty in the presence of the enemy"
The British do not hand out many of these medels.
#32 - cptsweatpants (06/13/2014) [-]
If knocking out a dude with an MG tripod because you ran out of ammo while killing 29 other dudes gets you a 2nd grade award then what the hell do you have to do to get the 1st grade?
#58 to #32 - anon (06/14/2014) [-]
I think the basic requirement is to know your ABCs
User avatar #94 to #32 - crazehtoast (06/14/2014) [-]
Save other soldiers.
While he kicked some ***************** ass, it was to survive.
If there was another soldier he was saving or something similar, he would've gotten the Victoria Cross.
#97 to #32 - istusekta (06/14/2014) [-]
Simply look up all the other people who have earned a VC ( Victoria's Cross ) then you shall know. Most of the recipients pass away, however few such as Australian recipient Benjamin Roberts-smith perform their acts of heroism and survive (That being said that's the Australian version of the VC).
User avatar #103 to #97 - specialone (06/14/2014) [-]
The VC is for all Commonwealth troops I believe. Doesn't depend on death - just the level of selflessness.
#237 to #103 - istusekta (06/15/2014) [-]
Yeah, exactly. you could kill a thousand people and they wouldn't bestow you with one unless you directly saved other soldiers lives. but they changed it to not be awarded to all countries of the commonwealth hence the Australian version of it is different to the British one.
#105 to #32 - anon (06/14/2014) [-]
The awards take time and usually involve a lot of politics. It could have been he was only awarded that medal at the time before receiving a higher grade. The medal of honor which is the U.S's most decorated in the Army takes years to award.
#142 to #32 - anon (06/14/2014) [-]
Most of the time, you have to die. The other most of the time, you have to lose a limb and look horrendous for the rest of your life.

And if you're like 1/500 of the winners, you did something remarkably stupid (brave) and somehow came out unscathed.
User avatar #45 to #32 - kilotech (06/13/2014) [-]
die, usually
User avatar #33 to #32 - lokiwins (06/13/2014) [-]
Usually it involves saving the lives of fellow soldiers with selfless bravery.
User avatar #83 to #33 - catpisseverdeen (06/14/2014) [-]
Killing 30 potential suicide bombers should mean that he saved lives.
User avatar #34 to #33 - cptsweatpants (06/13/2014) [-]
Isn't that pretty much what he did?
User avatar #35 to #34 - lokiwins (06/13/2014) [-]
Well there wasn't any other soldiers directly in harms way at that time. Can be for civilians too. What he did was more a fight for survival response than trying to save anyone.

Save someone's ass in addition. While badass, he only saved himself. Victoria Cross is rewarded for actions of selflessness. This guy was rewarded for kicking ass and taking names.

Didn't you read- it was dark, he could probably barely see them so relied mostly on sound, which is hard as hell when assault rifles are firing from all directions.

still,
if you give anyone an arse ton of grenades and bullets and told them to shoot blindly at
incoming enemies i am sure they will hit them sight or not...it is still amazing, just not as amazing
as killing 30 people with say, a couple grenades and a half a dozen magazines instead of an entire
ammo dump?
User avatar #177 to #174 - capslockrage (06/14/2014) [-]
