IN 1916, John William Alexander Jackson charged out into no man's land to rescue a fellow soldier, then spent another half an hour searching for more wounded under heavy fire.
All this, despite the fact his right arm had just been blown off above the elbow.
He was, and still is, the youngest Australian to ever receive the Victoria Cross, and the first Australian to receive the medal for service on the Western Front.
Scarf Room owner Leonie Carroll has set up a tribute to the war hero in the front window of her Peel Street business, after discovering Pvt Jackson was a distant relative.
Ms Carroll recognised the maiden name of Pvt Jackson's mother, McFarlane, from her family tree.
"I went back and had a look - he's my father's distant cousin," Ms Carroll said.
"I'm a McInnes, so my family comes from around Albury way and they were from Hay in the Riverina."
Ms Carroll said she was moved by Pvt Jackson's bravery.
"It brought tears to my eyes," she said.
"To get a Victoria Cross medal at 18-years of age is pretty incredible."
War records show Pvt Jackson was serving in the eastern Amentieres section on the western front.
During a raid in the lead up to what would later be known as the Battle of Somme, he was helping a seriously wounded man back to safety, when a shell exploded nearby.
Despite the blast ripping his arm off, he managed to return to the trenches, where an officer applied a tourniquet to what remained of his limb using a piece of string and a stick.
Pvt Jackson said he felt no pain, just a numbing sensation, and returned to no man's land to help rescue his wounded mates.
He survived the war, and passed away in Melbourne in 1959 from heart complications.
It's not the first time Ms Carroll has done an Anzac tribute.
"I always do an Anzac window display, because I truly respect what they did for us," she said.
"It's nice for people to see. People come in and congratulated me, but it's not about me, it's about giving thanks for what they did.
"We wouldn't be here today like this without them."
