|Note||Victoria Cross Instituted 1856.--Front and back pages. Includes Bibliographical references (pages 665-680) and index. This book is derived from over 50 years of painstaking research to provide in one single volume all those now known Freemasons who have been awarded the Victoria Cross since its Royal Warrant was instituted on the 29th January 1856. Exactly what title to give such a comprehensive publication was in itself a challenge, with approximately 2,000 books and titles regarding the Victoria Cross already published. The answer amazingly came eventually to the author in a dream. Freemasons will be aware that, int egral to formal proceedings within Masonic lodges there is a book of Holy Scriptures (for example The Bible) which is referred to as 'The Volume of the Sacred Law'. The content of the 'Volume of Valour' seeks to illustrate, through individual stories, tho se aspects of bravery and gallantry which are encapsulated in the supreme award for valour, the Victoria Cross and those eminent principles which are applied by Freemasons the world over through 'Brotherly Love, relief and Truth'. With humility, may I in vite you to peruse this work which I sincerely hope will prove to be both educational and entertaining. "Words can build bridges and enrich someone's day, words provide pleasure, no gift can convey". Granville Stacey Angell.--Preface.|
