Recorded Tuesday 30 May 2017. In 1917, Robert Grieve was awarded the highest military honour, the Victoria Cross (VC) medal, for knocking out a machine gun post concealed in a concrete pill-box during the Battle of Messines. Unusual for a VC award, Grieve’s actions were reported by two non-commissioned officers. Hear Philip Powell discuss his research on Grieve and the broader implications of the Battle of Messines on Monash’s 3rd Division. Grieve’s VC is currently on display in the Shrine’s Galleries of Remembrance. It will be moving to the Australian War Memorial, Canberra in early July where it will be displayed for six months before returning to the Shrine in late 2017.
