Brigadier General Lachlan Chisholm Wilson has been described as the least known distinguished soldier in Queensland.

His leadership of the unmounted Regiment on Gallipoli earned him the C.M.G. He was a commander who remained cool throughout the ill-fated campaign and led his men with authority and skill. The Evacuation of Gallipoli however, was not the end of this soldiers' war.
