“The study of history allows us to understand our past and guide us going forward.
We have much to loose if we don’t reflect on our history”

Reg Watson

I recognise the incredible contribution that the early settlers and pioneers of Tasmania have made to society.  I acknowledge their sacrifice, their endurance against massive odds and their leadership past, present and into the future. I honour those who went before me, including those soldiers who left our land to lay their life on the line.  I acknowledge them all.
