Join in and celebrate the end of 2016 and the start of the cricket season, for a talk on the human and psychological aspects of service through the prism of cricket.

Sergeant Anthony ‘Harry’ Moffitt has served nearly 25 years in the Australian Army, including almost 20 as a SASR ‘Operator’ and Team Leader. Harry carried a cricket bat and balls with him during 11 operational tours to Afghanistan, Iraq and Timor Leste. At the end of each deployment the bats were signed by all of the SASR team members and support staff. When possible, this included politicians, significant military figures and even members of the Royal Family.

These bats illustrate the resilient nature of the Australian soldier who carries a little bit of home, humour and cricket wherever he or she serves. Two of Harry’s bats will be on display during the talk. Entry is by donation, bookings are essential.
