Wednesday 4th November, 7pm at Toitu (doors open 6pm to view the 'Call to Arms' exhibition)

Captain Charles Hazlitt Upham is the only combat soldier ever to win the Victoria Cross twice. His acts of bravery in World War II meant he probably deserved six more.

The mystery of how a reserved, modest, slightly built farm valuer from New Zealand, could be so ferocious and fearless in battle has intrigued and fascinated Tom Scott ever since he read about Charles Upham as a schoolboy. ‘Searching for Charlie’ is his epic quest to unravel the “real” Charles Upham. Enjoy an evening with Tom Scott as he entertains and enlightens us along with Toitu's military historian and exhibition curator, William McKee.

All proceeds to to Dunedin RSA to support their work in veteran welfare.
