As 2019 is the 200th anniversary of Queen Victoria's birth, it is appropriate to celebrate her introduction of the Victoria Cross, the highest award for gallantry.
Mark Smith is the Arms and Militaria expert on the BBC's Antiques Roadshow. Having started collecting medals at a young age, this hobby has become a lifelong passion.
Mark is a well known expert on the Victoria Cross so will share with us the fascinating history and origins of this very special medal.
