On Friday 9 November 2018, more than 300 guests attended MESHA’s (formerly The Road Home) annual Remembrance Day Breakfast at the Adelaide Convention Centre.
(L-R): Katrina Robinson, Peter Rudland, Emilea Mysko and Garry Robinson.
The morning was an opportunity to acknowledge the sacrifices our veterans made and continue to make for the sake of our country, as we reflected on 100 years since the Armistice.
Our guests heard from an inspirational panel of speakers; former SAS soldier Peter Rudland, former special forces sniper Garry Robinson DSM and his wife Katrina, plus former Royal Australian Navy Able Seaman and Invictus Games dual gold medallist Emilea Mysko. With raw honesty about life and death, they kept the audience spellbound as they shared their emotional stories of loss, pain and recovery and how they overcame their physical and mental wounds through courage, determination and support from their loved ones.
A special mention to our MC for the morning, Channel 7’s Jessica Adamson as well as the Australian Army Band and Pulteney Grammar String Quartet who put on wonderful performances. Thank you to our generous sponsors for their support, including the University of South Australia, Flinders University, RSL Care South Australia, Saab Australia, DBO Australia, Nova Systems, Babcock Australia and Westpac.
Thank you to all our guests, who’s support is crucial and will help our veterans, emergency service personnel and their families find their Road Home.
