Three plinths with bronze statues and plaques commemorate Victoria Cross recipients from the Euroa district. 

Lieutenant (later Major) Frederick Tubb and Corporal Alexander Burton won their Victoria Crosses in the Lone Pine trenches at Gallipoli in August 1915 repelling a Turkish counter-attack — Burton was killed in the attack and awarded his medal posthumously.  Tubb died on the Western Front in France two years later.

Lieutenant Maygar won his Victoria Cross rescuing a comrade under heavy fire during the Boer War in 1901 and was later killed in action during World War One.
