    Charles Upham was the most highly decorated soldier in the Commonwealth forces of WWII, and coulr arguably be called the bravest soldier of the ware. An unassuming stock worker / Valuer at the beginning of the war, he stormed through Crete and the Western Desert amazing and confounding his comrades with his exploits. he won two Victoria Crosses (the only combat soldier ever to do so) and in the opinion of his superiors deserved many more. Captured, he beacme an escape artist and ended his was in the famous Colditz POW camp. Shy and reluctant to take credit for his actions, he deflected all praise onto his soldiers and was described as "distraught" that he had been honoured. he then farmed in North Canterbury until his death in 1994, avoiding the limelight whenever possible.
