I have only just seen the article written in the Avon Valley Advocate newspaper about the unveiling of great-great uncle Hugo Vivian Hope Throssell’s statue in Northam.
It was Anzac Day 2015, Saturday 25th April and my brother Rohan, his wife Laure and their two sons Mikael and Aston and I travelled to Northam an hour’s drive from Perth before the dawn. After the service we all shared breakfast courtesy of the RSL (Returned Serviceman’s League) and went to the unveiling ceremony following a walk down by the Avon river.
Here is a photograph of Hugo in uniform.
