On August 21st, 2014 13738 Commander Chris Hadfield (Class of 1982) gave an inspiring talk to about 1,000 students at Melbourne’s Wesley College. 12506 Captain Lionel Boxer’s (Class of 1980) daughter Lauren, who is in year 5 at Wesley, was surprised to find him in the audience. After Chris’s presentation he was most kind to pose for this photo before he departed on quite a tight itinerary. As President of the Australia Branch, Lionel welcomed Chris to Melbourne. This is typical of meetings of the Australia Branch of the Ex-Cadet Club, where there has been a grand-total gathering of two ex-cadets. If any ex-cadets living in or visiting Australia have an interest in catching up please feel most welcome to contact Lionel at lboxer@hotmail.com
