She was a sporty teenager.

She could have run away.

Instead, she fought and fought.

As her heartbroken mum tells us today: “Grace is never coming back to us — but we never want her to be forgotten.”

The George Cross is Britain’s highest bravery award, equal to the military-only Victoria Cross.

It is for “acts of the greatest heroism or most conspicuous courage in circumstances of extreme danger”.

Every word applies to Grace.

The medal is rare.

It must be recommended by the PM and awarded by the monarch.

So The Sun urges Rishi Sunak and His Majesty King Charles: Honour Grace with that gong.

She was an example to us all.

Let the memory of her heroism never fade.
