Book Signing & Presentation – The Victoria Cross

'The Victoria Cross, Australia Remembers'. Inspired by Valour, revered by a Nation.

The Totally & Permanently Incapacitated Ex-Servicemen and Women’s Association of Victoria Incorporated in partnership with Award Winning Author, Michael C Madden, are proud to announce the imminent 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.

The book is dedicated to preserving the remarkable personal stories of Australia’s 100 Victoria Cross Recipients and recognising the often untold stories of their families, peers and communities. The individual profiles have been written as a way for families and friends to give their perspective on how the Victora Cross has affected them and their communities.

“…these stories go beyond the battlefield action; they bring to life not just the award but also the broader story of where those servicemen came from and how families coped after the fighting had ended…” Doug Baird, Father of Corporal Cameron Baird VC MG.

Supported by Big Sky Publishing and taking in many thousands of volunteer hours, this book 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.

“…This book tells the stories of Australia’s 100 Victoria Cross recipients in a uniquely intimate way: in most cases with insight from the men’s families themselves. For me, it was a pleasure to work with the author on this project. The gallantry and sacrifice of our Victoria Cross recipients should always be remembered, as should the service and sacrifice of all Australian service personnel, most of whom received no decorations. Each one of their stories is as unique, inspiring ans worth of remembrance as those featured in the bool – Lest We Forget…” Keith Payne, VC AM KSL.

The book will be officially launched at Bunjil Place, City of Casey, Narre Warren, Victoria on Saturday April 21 followed by special Book Signing & Presentation Events across the country including Currumbin RSL at 10am on Friday April 27.
