He fought in the triumphant North African battles and then in the disastrous campaigns of Greece and Crete before playing a decisive role in the making of an Australian legend on the Kokoda Trail. After being severely wounded in 1943, he underwent a long period of convalescence before further serving Australia with distinction as a public servant, political figure and diplomat.
