Lt Gorle VC Stone Unveiling

A Commemorative VC paving stone is to be unveiled at 11.00 on the 1st October 2018 at the junction of Victoria Avenue South and Merton Road, Southsea in honour of Robert Vaughan Gorle VC

Robert Vaughan Gorle (06/03/1896 – 10/01/1937) was awarded the Victoria Cross as a result of his actions during the attack on Ledeghem in Belgium during the First World War.

The Citation, recorded in the London Gazette Supplement: 31067, Page: 14775, reads:

“T./Lt. Robert Vaughan Gorle, ” A ” Bty., 50th Bde., R.F.A.

For most conspicuous braveiy, initiative and devotion to duty during the attack on Ledeghem. on 1st October, 1918, when in command of an 18-pdr. gun working in close conjunction with infantry. He brought his gun into action in the most exposed positions on four separate occasions, and disposed of enemy machine guns by firing over open sights under direct machine-gun fire at 500 to 600 yards’ range. Later, seeing that the infantry were being driven back by intense hostile fire, he, without hesitation, galloped his gun in front of the leading infantry, and on two occasions knocked out enemy machine guns which were causing the trouble. His disregard of personal safety and dash were a magnificent example to the wavering line, which rallied and re-took the northern end of the village.”

He died in January 1937 of yellow fever and is buried in Stellawood Cemetery in Durban; Section K, Grave 144.
