Edward McDonald Lovett
The brave men of the Gunditjmara garrison and first family group to be inducted to the Victorian Aboriginal Honour Roll.
The Lovett brothers occupy a special place in the history, not just of Australia, but also of the Commonwealth. Four of the brothers served in both World War One (WWI) and World War Two (WWII). Their unique family story has come to symbolise the contribution that thousands of Aboriginal men and women have made to the defence of Australia, even at a time when citizenship rights were denied to them at home.
