Harry Murray Farmer - Soldier 1880 - 1966

"Capt Murray rushed to the front and rallied his men by sheer valour, with his revolver in one hand and a bomb in the other, he was ubiquitous, cheering his men, heading bombing parties, leading bayonet charges or carrying wounded from the dangerously shelled areas, with unequalled bravery. His Company would follow him anywhere and die for him to a man."

From the citation for his Victoria Cross. 

Unveiled on 24 February 2006 by His Excellency Major General Michael Jeffery AC, CVO MC, Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia. 

In memory of all who served.
