Ned Kelly and his "Kelly Gang" were Australian outlaws who became famous for their bullet proof armoured suits. During their criminal career, Ned and his gang were responsible for a number of crimes, including the ambushed shooting of three policemen. And later the execution style killing of a close friend turned traitor.
Successful in carrying out several bank robberies, the gang members were fugitives for nearly two years, until an unplanned siege developed at a country victorian Inn. During the siege, while wearing his suit of armour, Ned made his famous and extraordinary 'Last Stand'. The Kelly gang had engaged the Victorian Police in a futile gunfight until all the members, except for Ned, were killing. But despite Ned's serious gunshot wounds and blood loss, he continued to the assist his gang including the hostages still trapped inside the inn.
As the only surviving gang member, he was tried and hanged for his crimes. Ned's last words as they pulled down a white hood over his face were "Such is Life".
