The family of World War II hero Ted Kenna say they have mixed emotions about putting his Victoria Cross up for auction. Kenna’s medal, earned for single-handedly taking out a Japanese machine gun post, will be the first WWII VC to be sold publicly.
The VC is the centrepiece in a 10-medal collection estimated to be worth $900,000. His son Rob Kenna says he and his siblings were honouring their father’s wish in selling the medal but he admits to “mixed feelings”.
