Celebrating the life of...
Eric Charles Twelves Wilson
(1912 - 2008)
Lieutenant-Colonel Eric Wilson, VC
Eric Charles Twelves Wilson

Lieutenant-Colonel Eric Wilson, was a British World War II hero, who at the point he died in Dec 2008 (aged 96) had been the oldest living holder of the Victoria Cross medal. His VC was originally awarded "posthumously" as officials thought he had been killed whilst repelling a large force of Italian soldiers in North Africa. The Italians had only declared war the day before they advanced on the British held position. Two months after he was reportred as killed (his family had also been informed of the fact) he was awarded the Victoria Cross (his country's highest combat honor). .... he was later found alive trying to tunnel his way out of a prisoner of war camp in Ethiopia. After his return he went on to serve with the Long Range Desert Group - seeing further active service in Africa and Burma. He later received his medal in person from King George VI at Buckingham Palace. Such an amazing story of a true hero.
