After every conflict, there comes a time when historians gather to describe the heroic exploits stemming from that action. In the case of Victoria Cross winners, such histories are ordinarily detailed and numerous, but there are some exceptions.

 

In the forty years since the end of the Vietnam War, not one book of note has commemorated the heroism of one of Australia’s greatest soldiers: Ray Simpson, VC, DCM.
