I was told by a family member today that Pte 1061 John Jobbins was offerd a V.C , but he did not want one. Does anyone know anything about this.
I myself can not find any records on this, If true please can anyone tell me how to get the details.

Regrettably this story has to be family folklore - Lieutenant Bromhead's recommendations for the 24th Regt VCs is held in the National Archives.

I should have added that Bromhead's report is quoted in full in 'Rorke's Drift' by Adrian Greaves.
