Now, I certainly was not aware before by move Downunder that each state has a Governor and the nation, a Governor General to represent the Queen in Australia. Well, Ms Quentin Bryce has just taken over from Maj Gen Micheal Jeffery former CO of the Australian SAS amongst other things) in that very role. She, like me is very interested in womenâs development in Australia and has a fairly good pedigree. Not bad looking in her day either! Jeffery, I am told, was a bit of a git. Iâm quite surprised that a country such as this, with a, letâs say pre-twenty first century outlook on women, has accepted her. I met her last year and sheâs a very approachable and switched on lady â I wonder if sheâll be the last Governor General. Of note, linking nicely in with the Best British General thread, 1st Viscount Slim was sent to fill the job as, one would presume a neat little golden hand shake between 1953-60.
