Johnson Beharry VC gave the final inspirational lecture of the term, in what has been a great series of lectures on everything from aliens to entrepreneurship. Johnson received the Victoria Cross for “two individual acts of great heroism by which he saved the lives of his comrades” in 2005 and recounted in the lecture both of the incidents that led to the award and talked about his time in Iraq and his life since. He is pictured here alongside the plaque to Old Shirburnians, which hangs outside the Chapel, who have received the VC in past conflicts.
