    The man receiving his Victoria Cross at 00:26 is Agansing Rai, (mentioned in the commentary, and spelling checked online).

    "He presents one posthumously to the young girl betrothed to one of the dead soldiers" - this was the medal for the late Netra Bahadur Thapa, (again, mentioned in the commentary, and spelling checked).

    NOTE: Netra Bahadur Thapa is also spelt as Netrabahadur Thapa.

    Details of the actions for which the two men were each awarded a Victoria Cross can be found here.....
