A specialist in military medals will be giving a presentation about the history of the Victoria Cross to members of the Wanstead Park Women's Club next month.

"My talk will explain the origins of the nation's highest award for bravery, explore some of the myths associated with the Victoria Cross and recount some of the exploits of those who have won it," said Mark Smith, a regular expert on The Antiques Roadshow.

The event will take place on 10 April from 8pm at Aldersbrook Bowls Club (visitors: £2; booking required).
