2nd Lieutenant Rupert Price Hallowes VC

A memorial event to honour a Victoria Cross hero and a free, interactive family event are among the events coming up to remember the borough and its residents’ role in the First World War.

Memorial for Redhill’s Victoria Cross hero

A special commemorative stone to honour Redhill-born First World War hero Second Lieutenant Rupert Price Hallowes is to be unveiled in Memorial Park on Friday 25 September at 12 noon.

Residents are welcome to attend the ceremony which takes place on the centenary of the battle for which he was awarded the prestigious Victoria Cross medal, the highest military decoration awarded for valour in the face of the enemy.

2Lt Hallowes, who served in The Duke of Cambridge’s Own (Middlesex Regiment), was awarded the Victoria Cross for his bravery and devotion to duty during the battle at Hooge in Belgium, which took place between 25 September and 1 October 1915.

You can find out more about 2Lt Hallowes’ story and the memorial ceremony on our World War I webpage
