Tom, an Oxford scholar and an archaeologist, became an unlikely hero of the Crete resistance. Working as a spy with the British Special Operations Executive during WW2, he became a celebrated friend of Crete and a loathed adversary of the occupying Germans.

Seventy years later, his cousin of the same name has brought his story to life, and is hosting a presentation about the role played by a little known Tasmanian in this amazing chapter in Crete history.
