Tony Zahra walked in 2017 the Thai/Burma Rail
In 2018, I was fortunate enough to do a symbolic walk of the Thailand Burma Railway with a small Team. The motivation for the walk was in remembrance of those who had suffered and died in the building of the railway. Also, the aim was to raise awareness and funds to support those who are suffering P.T.S.D. The walk was very challenging and aspirational in many aspects. We met many local people from all walks of life and are very grateful for their guidance and help along the way. ANZAC Day Dawn Service at Hell Fire Pass was one of the most moving and memorable that I have attended. Followed by the morning service held at Kanchanbury War Cemetery where I was honoured along with Domonic Boyle (SC) in placing a wreath on the Memorial. We met hundreds of people who were amazed at our feat. I would really like to thank the Team that supported me along with the Community of Broken Hill. Also, those who were a part of the Tour Group that supported Warrior Racing Ltd. The people of Thailand and a special thank you to the Thai Army for allowing us to sleep at Hell Fire Pass. A special mention goes to Kevin Otway, Greg Marini, Gym Girls, Slam Duncan, Phil Grossi, Scott and Kay the Interpreters, Ning our safety car driver, the Monks and Ben Harris who never left my side.
Thank you to the RFDS Broken Hill for supplying emergency communication for the walk in Thailand.
