GG’s speech on investiture of Australia’s first naval VC


Speech by Governor-General David Hurley on the occasion of the investiture of the Victoria Cross on Abel Seaman Teddy Sheean, the Royal Australian Navy’s first VC.

Today is a momentous and historic day.

For the Sheean family — many of whom are here with us at Yarralumla; other family members are watching online. For the Tasmanian community. For the Royal Australian Navy and entire ADF. And, for Australia.

It is a day to remember Ordinary Seaman Edward ‘Teddy’ Sheean.
