Educated at Eton, Oxford and Sandhurst, he served with the Grenadier Guards in Egypt before becoming aide-de-camp to the governor of Victoria.

On one level The Companion talks about the most famous and frontline Australians, but on another it tells us about ourselves: who we read, who we watch, who we listen to, who we cheer for, who we aspire to be, and who we'll never forget. The Companion is available to buy online and in the Portrait Gallery Store.
