Peter's inspirations

Who is someone that inspires you?

My wife Lesley. She never gives up, never compromises her standards and puts everyone before herself.

Why do you want to complete the Kokoda Trek?

Firstly to honour those that suffered and those that lost their lives on the Kokoda Trek, secondly to share the experience with a younger group of veterans and civilians and thirdly to be an example for older Australians.

What do you hope to get out of completing the trek?

To bring back some poignant memories I can share with others in the league (RSL).
To inspire other older Australians and veterans. To learn from my companions.
