Geoffrey Drummond VC
Inscription

{Beneath an image of a Victoria Cross medal:}
Lieutenant Commander Geoffrey Drummond, Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve, 9th - 10th May 1918

Site: VC heroes - Victoria Embankment (12 memorials)

SW1, Victoria Embankment, Victoria Embankment Gardens

Reading right to left: De Pass; Rhodes-Moorhouse; Keysor; Campbell; Dunville; Colyer-Fergusson; Hewitt; Elliott-Cooper; Watson; Drummond; West; Gort. The last 4 were added in 2018, after we'd taken our main photograph.

We do wonder why these VC plaques are here, close to the Ministry of Defence, when others are near the homes of those honoured. A viscount and 3 hyphens?  Does their class have anything to do with this elite location?
