Better Late Than Never

Better late than never.
A war hero who was buried in an unmarked grave will be celebrated by officers more than 140 years after he died.

Corporal Robert Grant, who served with the Northumberland Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, was awarded the Victoria Cross when he was 20 for rescuing a fellow soldier who was being shot during the Indian Mutiny in 1857.
