World War I Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in Seaford, Sussex, he served as a Captain the 1st Battalion, Lancashire Fusiliers, British Army. On April 25, 1915, during a landing on West Beach, Cape Helles, Gallipoli, Turkey, the 1st Battalion, Lancashire Fusiliers, were met by deadly fire from hidden machine guns which caused a great number of casualties. Captain Bromley with other men of his Battalion, rushed up to and cut the wire entanglements which held up the advance under fire from the enemy. After overcoming extreme difficulties, they reached the upper cliffs and held the position. Promoted Major, he was later killed when the ship he was on was torpedoed in the Mediterranean Sea. For gallantry in the face of the enemy at Gallipoli, Turkey, on April 25, 1915, he was posthumously invested with his Victoria Cross on March 15, 1917.
