Everyone faces challenges in life, often with courage, but few face direct and immediate danger. We have selected two individuals and a group of eight others, to represent the wider population, who illustrate how some have risen to the challenge when called upon:
- Ernest Gidden – a Royal Navy officer who defused a bomb in central London
- Anton Walbrook – a movie star and Jewish refugee
- Hampstead’s war heroes – eight servicemen who were buried at home
