Our namesake

Sir Edward “Weary” Dunlop (1907 – 1993)

Sir Edward “Weary” Dunlop was an Australian surgeon who is renowned for his leadership and courage while being held prisoner by the Japanese during World War II.

He was born in Victoria in 1907 and trained first as a pharmacist and then as a doctor. He was also an outstanding rugby player, and played for the 1932 Wallabies side that took the Bledisloe Cup from the All Blacks.

After the war he had a distinguished career in medicine and was especially active in his support of veterans. He was knighted in 1969 and named Australian of the Year in 1976.
