This Sunday 23rd September at 6.30pm, ABC1’s Compass has a program about the life of the Rev John Flynn. The founder of the Royal Flying Doctor Service and as the man on the $20 note.
One hundred years ago John Flynn was the founder of the Australian Inland Mission, established by the Presbyterian church, his dream to provide a mantle of safety to the people in the outback. He couldn’t have imagined that this would become the Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia, one of the largest and most comprehensive aeromedical services in the world.
