Summer Griffin Magazine

If you didn’t happen to catch our Summer Griffin Issue of 2016/2017, it’s not too late. View this issue HERE. In the event you would like to receive a hard copy version, please drop us a line.

In this issue we speak with past student and former Head of the Defence Centre, Sydney, Commodore Alan Thompson. With an extraordinary commitment to the service of Australia, Alan’s time has spanned close to three decades. At the height of his career, he was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia on 26 January, 1993 for his outstanding commitment to Defence Force personnel policy development. Alan speaks humbly about his impact on the Australian Defence Force, and the moment on College grounds 54 years ago that became the turning point in understanding that the ability to alter attitudes and habits is within us all. These are the connections and stories that make up our community.
