Fusilier Museum, Bury
For the first time in history, 17 of the 18 Victoria Crosses awarded to Lancashire Fusiliers during the First World War have been united as part of a special exhibition.
The 18th VC medal, which belonged to Bertram Best Dunkley, is still missing despite an international search to try and locate it earlier in the year. It is believed to still be in the UK, probably in private ownership following a private sale.

Daytrippers’ annual dinner dance is held tonight from 7pm at the Holiday Inn, Bolton.

The night includes a three course meal, some great live entertainment and a raffle.
