Liverpool Hero’s Memorial to Victoria Cross recipients

Located in Liverpool’s Chavasse Park,  Abercromby Square, in the city of Liverpool.  Unveiled in 2008 to commemorate Noel Chavasse and fifteen other Victoria Cross recipients.

Sculptor Tom Murphy

The statue depicts Chavasse and a stretcher-bearer from the Liverpool Scottish Battalion rescuing a wounded soldier. Born in 1884, Noel and his twin brother, Christopher, sons of the Bishop of Liverpool grew up with a profound sense of duty to others. Noel qualified as a doctor in 1912. He became a Captain in the territorial army and was awarded the VC twice during the First World War (known as ‘the VC and Bar’) for extraordinary actions in rescuing and treating wounded soldiers on the battlefield, at great risk to his own life. He was also awarded a Military Cross. His second VC was awarded posthumously. Captain Chavasse died on 4 August 1917, at the age of 32, and is buried at Brandhoek New Military Cemetery in Belgium.

Captain Chavasse  is quoted as saying “I do not intend to run any risk at all, unnecessarily; my blood is not heroic.”
