Ordinarily, I wouldn’t really be in favour of Bassetlaw Council spending their cash on internet auction sites, but they deserve full credit for their latest eBay purchase.

I think it is fantastic that they’ve stumped up the cash to bring home an important part of Worksop history - a Victoria Cross Trophy awarded to local First World War hero Sgt William Henry Johnson.

Items like this belong here, and we should do what we can to get such artefacts back to their rightful home.
