Guy George Egerton Wylly
Birth: Feb. 17, 1880
Death: Jan. 9, 1962

British Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. Born in Tasmania, Australia, he served as a Lieutenant in the Tasmanian Imperial Bushman, during the Second Boer War. On September 1, 1900, he was in command of an advance scouting party near Transvaal, South Africa. As his patrol passed through a narrow gorge, enemy Boers suddenly opened fire at close range wounding six out of the party of eight, including Lieutenant Wylly. Seeing one of his men was badly wounded and couldn't move, he went back to him. He made the wounded man take his horse and opened fire from behind a rock until the others retreated to safe cover. For gallantry in the face of the enemy, he was awarded the Victoria Cross on November 1900. Wylly remained in the Australian Imperial Force and was awarded the Distinguished Service Order Medal in World War I. He retied from active service a Colonel in 1933. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
