Widow's pride at husband's bravery award

The widow of Royal Navy officer murdered in Southampton as he tried to stop a sailor from shooting his colleagues says she is "extremely proud and humbled" after he was awarded the George Cross. Lieutenant Commander Ian Molyneux is only the second person to receive the award posthumously.

On behalf of myself and our children, I wish to express how extremely proud and humbled we all feel to know that Ian's remarkable bravery has been recognised with such a prestigious award. Ian is so desperately missed, but his memory will live on through his four beautiful children and in the hearts and minds of all who knew him.
