Death: Oct. 4, 1971

World War I Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. He served as a Private in the 33rd Battalion, New South Wales Australian Imperial Forces. During the Battle of Messines at St Ives, Belgium, June 7 to 12, 1917, Private Carroll rushed the enemy's trench and bayoneted four men. Discovering a German machine gun team, he attacked killing three of the men and captured the gun. He later managed to rescue two of his fellow soldiers after they were buried by a shell explosion. For gallantry in the face of the enemy, he was promoted Lance Corporal and was awarded the Victoria Cross Medal in August 1917. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
