 The George Cross - Rediff Personal Homepages
If at this moment King George could not guarantee to his subjects a better furture, he could at least formally recognize their gallantry in the present, but he was exercised in his mind as to what form this recognition should take.
There existed many decorations and medals instituted by his predecessors for the reward of gallantry and meritorious conduct, but these, by their terms of reference, were restricted in the main to members of the armed forces and only one of them, the Victoria Cross, was open to award of all ranks.
The planning of the George Cross and Medal was therefore of particular pleasure and interest to him, and the final design was almost entirely his own work, for he had sketched out an original device and had studied and amended with meticulous care the subsequent drafts presented to him.
