John Baker: Surf Lifesaving & Their Military History
Posted on: Mon 5 Oct 2020
State President of Surf Lifesaving SA, John is also a member of the Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Crew, and serves as the Surf Life Saving Australia Deputy National President. John’s been heavily involved in Surf Lifesaving since he was a young boy, and that’s enabled him to research his two great interests in life… Surf Lifesaving (of course), and Lifesavers in our Military History.
With well over 150,000 volunteer members, Surf Lifesaving is one of the largest Volunteer organisations in Australia. Many people alive today owe their very existence to those men and women who patrol our beaches.
