On the centenary of the outbreak of the WWI, we focus on the men and women known affectionately as ‘padres’, chaplains who have served the Australian Army officially since 1913. At the heart of the program is the untold story of one of Australia’s earliest WWI padres, an Anglican minister who by war's end was Major The Reverend R.H. Pitt-Owen.
