Rupert Vance Moon
Birth: Aug. 14, 1892
Death: Feb. 28, 1986

World War I Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. He served as a Lieutenant in the 58th Battalion, Victoria Australian Imperial Forces. During the Battle of Bullecourt, France, on May 12, 1917, Lieutenant Moon's platoon had been given the job of taking out a German machine gun shelter. Despite being wounded, he and his platoon managed to drive the German's out of the shelter, forcing them to retreat to their main trench. For valor in the face of the enemy, he was invested with the Victoria Cross at Buckingham Palace by King George V in August 1917 and later promoted Captain. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
