Hamish Blake

Hamish was an engaged and passionate ambassador for the Invictus Games Sydney 2018, having been influenced by a trip to Afghanistan. He said of the experience, ‘I was profoundly changed by a trip we took to Afghanistan in 2008. It was my first real experience properly interacting with Defence personnel and saw first-hand the incredible work they do.’ Back in 2018, Hamish said about the Invictus Games, ‘I think it’s an awesome movement that not only provides a great experience for Defence personnel and veterans but allows the public to show tangible support for veterans which I think there is a real want to do, we just often don’t know how. It’s an awesome chance to show our appreciation and support to people who, quite frankly, have risked their lives to support our country!’
