Capt. Hugo Throssell VC

Sunset Memorial

ANZAC Day Peace Commemoration

Hugo Throssell was awarded the VC for bravery at Hill 60, Gallipoli, where he was severely wounded.

He returned to active service and was again wounded in the 1917 Battle of Gaza, in which his brother was killed.

Hugo Throssell did not support ANZAC Day. He became a peace campaigner and refused to glorify war.

Join us to remember all those killed in war, all those disabled in war, all those orphaned in war, all women raped in war, the Earth damaged by war and the war against Aboriginal Australians.

Gather: in the grounds of:
