Mr Plow 🚜
Bruce Kingsbury was the first ever Dig to earn a VC on Aussie soil.
He grew up in Melbourne, working on farms in rural Victoria where he had plenty of land to bury dead hookers, before enlisting in the #AIF
He was sent to Lebanon for his first trip and didn't waste any time getting stuck in to them like #cronulla2005 #localsonly #takemeback
He then was shipped out to Port Moresby to head up the Kokoda trail IOT stop the Jap advance toward his Battalions HQ. His section quickly became famous for #knockingoffnips throughout the AO, but they all got killed except for Brucey in a wild stoush in the J. The HQ was in jeopardy of being overrun and the CO couldn't have the TimTams fall in to Jap hands.
Brucey chucked on a high vis shirt, snorted a crushed original tim tam off a PNG birds tits and grabbed the #brengun... He plowed through the Nip lines whilst firing from the hip like a truck charging down a French beach #issuinglullabies to Jap soldiers #tada #hooroo #yepseeyahmate
He won a VC and every Victa lawnmower made in Australia has his name on the side, to remind future generations of the time he mowed down dozens of Japs on that sunny day in 1942.
