There is no greater courage than to risk one’s life in the defence of others.

In the Australian military, this bravery in the face of the enemy is recognised by the Victoria Cross, and in civilian life and non-combat military situations it had been the Imperial George Cross until the introduction of the uniquely Australian Cross of Valour in 1975.

‘In the Service of Others: For Valour and Gallantry’ brings together Australia’s four living Victoria Cross and sole surviving George Cross recipients – each of whom is recorded in history for extraordinary acts of valour and gallantry. They come together for the first time to inspire us all to help our wounded servicemen and women.

With the support of our Victoria Cross and George Cross recipients, all profits from the sale of this limited edition collection are being donated to Soldier On for their work in support of today’s servicemen and women who have been physically and mentally wounded in the service of our country.
