The Rt. Hon. Stanley Melbourne Bruce was Australia's Prime Minister from 1923 to 1929. He succeeded William Hughes following the former's resignation, but lost his seat in the 1929 election; one of only two Prime Ministers to do so (the other being John Howard in 2007).

In 1933 Bruce became Australia's High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, which role he held for 13 years.
