YOUR DISCOVERIES

”Through Findmypast I found a private letter from Lieutenant H.V Throssell to his commanding officer commending the efforts of my great uncle. He spoke about my great uncle for years after the war as he toured Australia recalling the moments resulting in his Victoria Cross award. It fills me with pride to know that one of Australia's bravest men commends my ancestor for his bravery!”
