Charles Upham

Victoria Cross and Bar - Charles Upham

Charles Upham was born on 21 September 1908.  He would have been 115 today.

He was a New Zealand soldier who earned the Victoria Cross twice during WWII.  Only 3 people in the Commonwealth have ever been awarded it twice!

The Victoria Cross is not a flashy medal – but it is one of the most prized.
