John Dunville VC VC heroes - Victoria Embankment

Plaque: John Dunville VC
War Memorial

Inscription

{Below an image of a Victoria Cross medal:}
Second Lieutenant John Dunville, 1st (Royal) Dragoons, 24th-15th June 1917.

Site: VC heroes - Victoria Embankment (8 memorials)

SW1, Victoria Embankment, Victoria Embankment Gardens

Reading right to left: De Pass; Rhodes-Moorhouse; Keysor; Campbell; Dunville; Colyer-Fergusson; Hewitt; Elliott-Cooper; and 4 vacant slots, in 2018 - we need to visit again since the last 4 were due to be installed that year.

Why are these here, close to the Ministry of Defence, when others are near the homes of those honoured? And such a preponderance of hyphens: 3 out of 8?
