This Battle of Tubabecelong took place on June 30 1866. Samuel Hodge, serving with the 4th West India Regiment, was awarded the Victoria Cross for his gallantry in effecting a breach in the stockade. He was badly wounded, but continued to assist the Governor, Colonel D’Arcy, by handing to him the rifles of his companions, with which the colonel kept the enemy at bay while the supports were coming up.
