Rats of Tobruk Victoria Cross Recipients

The History of the Victoria Cross


Currently there are Six (6) Victoria Cross Recipients on my National ROT Database.



Having recently been gratefully gifted the magnificent book "The Victoria Cross Australia Remembers" by the Author, Michael C. Madden and Miss Susan Serey, City of Casey Councillor, I was prompted to investigate how many Rats of Tobruk Victoria Cross recipients were stored  on my National ROT Database and ROT Tribute Website.

Having found Six (6) ROT Victoria Cross recipients, I felt the need to reveal the details of how they earned their Victoria Crosses, on my ROT Tribute Website, for all to see.

Thank you Michael C. Madden for producing this incredible book - a Masterpiece of our Military Heritage - and for autographing it for me, in our home - what a surprise this was for me - Blown away.

Thank you Susan Serey, for being such a great Friend and for being part of the Team which organised the launch of Michael Madden's book at Bunlil Place, City of Casey, and furthermore; for having organised the gift of the book to me, and for bringing Michael Madden to our home.


I recommend  this Masterpiece to all avid readers and collectors of our Australian Military Heritage, the proceeds of which goes to out Permanently and Totally Incapacitated (TPI) Victoria, Australia.
