"that was the start of an adventure"

A Centenarian's Remarkable Life: War, Faith and Encounters with Power

Jim’s father pioneered the introduction of motion pictures in Western Australia. However, tragedy struck at a young age when his mother succumbed to pleurisy.

Jim’s career as a journalist at the West Australian newspaper was interrupted by the outbreak of World War II. He flew Sunderland flying boats and contributed to the Allied effort on D-Day.

When he returned to Australia, Jim’s life took a transformative turn as he heeded a calling to join Moral Re-Armament, a Christian movement founded by Frank Buchman. MRA sought to foster personal growth and cultivate harmony between nations in a world grappling with the aftermath of war. 

Jim’s journey also intertwined with the corridors of power and he had numerous personal and insightful encounters with Australian prime ministers – including Curtin, Chifley and Fraser.
