The town of Stowmarket in Suffolk has been honouring its most famous son.
Almost 100 years to the day since Spencer Bent's bravery at the battle of Ypres, a special ceremony has been held to officially recognise his heroism.
A memorial stone has been unveiled in his home town. In November 1914, Drummer Bent demonstrated such gallantry in rescuing wounded comrades that he was rewarded with the Victoria Cross.
Despite being wounded himself, he survived the war. He died in 1977, aged 86. His grandchildren travelled from their homes in Cornwall and Cumbria to Stowmarket to be part of the ceremony.
It is said that Spencer Bent was just 12-years-old when he signed up, convincing Army officials that he was actually 14.
