Sir Roden Cutler Wheelchair Roll

Yesterday I heard car horns in the street below, looked out the office window and saw something unusual - one side of the roadway had been cleared to allow a parade of wheelchairs. The banner at the front (which I glimpsed but could not photograph) said it was the Sir Roden Cutler Wheelchair Roll which it turn out it an event held annually by the Sir Roden Cutler charities to celebrate Sir Roden Cutler Day. Sir Roden was New South Wales' longest serving Governor and a war hero, having been awarded the Victoria Cross for bravery.
