The 2016 Recipient was Mr ROBERT WINTHER 

(L-R) Shrine of Remembrance CEO Dean Lee, Medal Recipient Mr Robert Winther and
Chairman of the Shrine Trustees Air-Vice Marshal Chris Spence AO (Retd).

Robert is Veteran Liaison at Heidelberg Repatriation Hospital and has dedicated more than 50 years’ service to this role. He has been the driving force of numerous projects at the Hospital including The Anzac Memorial Chapel, The Remembrance Garden and the Jessie Mary Vasey Labyrinth. Robert’s commitment to the veteran community is apparent in his long incumbency and the support he provides in ensuring veterans’ stories are accessible to current and future generations through tours for school and community groups.

The high calibre of nominations for the Shrine Medal each year makes the selection of a recipient a difficult task and is testimony to the continued hard work which goes into increasing community knowledge and understanding of the service and sacrifice of Victorian men and women in war and peacekeeping.
