General Sir Peter Cosgrove is one of Australia’s most significant public figures, and next month he will discuss his extraordinarily full and eventful life with Frankston City Libraries and Mornington Peninsula Library Service.
As a soldier, Sir Peter saw action in Vietnam, winning the Military Cross, and he rose to the top of his profession to become Chief of the Defence Force. Soon after his retirement from the Army, he was invited to take charge of the relief and rebuilding operation in Queensland after Cyclone Larry.
As Governor-General he supported Australians in times of crisis, sadness, joy and celebration, representing us on the world stage with humour, intelligence and a force of personal magnetism that was felt by everyone from the Queen to US presidents. Sir Peter represents the traits we truly value: warmth, humanity, toughness and loyalty.
