Re those English.
The only British serviceman to be awarded the Victoria Cross twice during the First World War is to be honoured by the Royal Mint on a commemorative coin.

Captain Noel Godfrey Chavasse, a doctor in the Royal Army Medical Corps, saved the lives of at least 20 soldiers while tending to the wounded under heavy enemy fire during the battle of The Somme in 1916.
He was subsequently awarded Britain’s highest military honour, and a year later was back in the thick of the action at the Third Battle of Ypres, commonly known as Passchendaele [...]
There, on August 2 1917, the 32-year-old was gravely wounded by artillery fire, but continued caring for casualties until he was eventually taken to a clearing station, where he died two days later.
Chavasse was posthumously awarded a Bar to his Victoria Cross.
Separately, he had already won a Military Cross for bravery in action.
