WW1 hero Chavasse twins remembered in Lancashire

The bravery of two World War One brothers has been remembered in a production in Lancashire.

Capt Noel Chavasse, of the 10th Battalion of the King's (Liverpool) Regiment, became the only soldier to receive the Victoria Cross twice during the war.

His twin brother Christopher was a Chaplain in the Royal Army Chaplains' Department and was awarded the Military Cross.

A performance called Brothers in Arms in Fulwood and Lancaster tells the story of their courage, faith and sacrifice while under fire.
