Capt H. V. Throssell V.C.

Second Lieutenant Hugo Throssell VC was decorated for the most conspicuous bravery and devotion to duty during operations on Kalakij Aghala (Hill 60) in the Gallipoli Peninsula on 29th & 30th August 1915.

Although severely wounded in several places during a counter-attack, he refused to leave his post or obtain medical assistance until all danger was passed. After he`d had his wounds dressed he returned to the firing line until ordered out of action by a Medical Officer. By his personal courage and example he kept up the spirits of his party, and was largely instrumental in saving the situation at a critical period.

Hugo Throssell was the Officer in Charge (OIC) of the Jennacubbine Mounted Rifles and was the first Western Australian and only Light Horseman to be awarded a Victoria Cross in WW1
