Harold Dalziel V.C. Memorial BarPrint Page
A bar at the RSL Club commemorates Harry Dalziel who was awarded the Victoria Cross for his actions in World War One.
During the action in the Battle of Hamel, he advanced with a Lewis gun section before making a single-handed attack on a strong enemy machine-gun post, capturing the gun and its entire crew. Then, ignoring heavy enemy fire, he collected ammunition and reloaded magazines until he was severely wounded. After the war, although troubled by his injuries, he served in the militia and was also a songwriter.
Note : The RSL Club is no longer operating and the building has been sold.
