During my time at The West Australian I worked on a number of special projects. This 2004 wraparound tribute to the Anzacs was one of my favourites. I have always been a keen amateur military historian and especially enjoyed the pictorial research involved in a project of this kind.

The copy was subbed by a talented team of journalists, but I wrote the headings – one of my favourite tasks – and cut the stories to fit. My sub-editing skills have always been an advantage as a designer. The cover was designed by a highly-regarded colleague, Colin Poad.
