Tom was recently presented with a 2nd place certificate in the annual RSL Forestville Australia My Country writing competition. His entry was entitled, 'The Sportsmen's Thousand'. This was a reference to a recruitment poster which encouraged Australia's sportsmen to enlist as part of the Australian Imperial Force in 1917. The slogan was "Show the enemy what Australian sporting men can do". Well done, Tom! The photo below shows Tom with Jonathan O'Dea, Member for Davidson.
