Colin E. Tongs started this petition to The British Government MOD and

This is to honor all of the Men and Women that died by enemy action in the 1914-18 Great War. Tomorrow is the 11/11/2018 exactly 100 years after the ending of this tragic war. 103 years ago, at Neuve Chappell in France, 9786 Private William Tongs, undertook 3 acts of Bravery, each one deserving the highest award of the Victoria Cross. His burial records show that he was documented and buried as "Pvt. W. Tongs. V.C." His commanding officer wrote to his parents and told them of his 3 heroic actions, one of which was saving 7 men under heavy fire, by going into "no man's land" and bringing them back to safety one by one. His first act was that of silencing a German Machine gun, that was doing much damage, thus saving further lives, his third act was in the way he handled his machine gun and was mortally wounded doing so. Private Tongs was not awarded the Victoria Cross, even though it was stated on his burial records. We need 10,000 signatures to bring this to the attention of the government. After three years of attempting to right this wrong, the MOD will not investigate the issues. Give Private Tongs the dignity to which he deserves, please sign the petition like I have signed the many petitions that I have seen on change.org. The complete story can be seen on the following website. Thank you for signing. Mr. C. E Tongs, nephew of the deceased.
