The Totally & Permanently Incapacitated Ex-Servicemen & Women’s Association of Victoria Incorporated in partnership with award winning author, Michael C. Madden, is proud to announce the release of ‘The Victoria Cross, Australia Remembers’ – a unique account of the 100 Australians who have been awarded The Victoria Cross – the highest award for valour this nation can bestow.

This book was five years in the making. As part of their research, author Michael Madden and photographer Gordon Traill were invited to Windsor Castle and had access to the first prototype VC approved by Queen Victoria in 1856. Both were also allowed access to the Ministry of Defence base in Shropshire in England to view the metal that has been used in every VC – no Australian had ever previously been given access.

‘The Victoria Cross, Australia Remembers’ is dedicated to preserving the remarkable personal stories of Australia’s 100 Victoria Cross recipients and recognising the often untold stories of their families, their peers and their communities.

The individual profiles have been written as a way for families and friends to give their perspective on how the Victoria Cross has affected them and their communities.

Supported by Big Sky Publishing and taking in many thousands of volunteer hours, ‘The Victoria Cross, Australia Remembers’ has been produced as a ‘Not-for-Profit’ joint venture where all proceeds from the sale of the book go to the association for the ongoing support and welfare of its Veteran Members, their families, dependants and the broader Veteran Community.


For more information about the Official Launch of ‘The Victoria Cross, Australia Remembers’  at Bunjil Place, City of Casey, Narre Warren, Victoria on Saturday 21st April, 2018, please contact the following:
