better read's talking heads: Allan Sparkes
supported by City of Sydney
Allan Sparkes was the first Australian police officer to be awarded Australia’s highest decoration for bravery: the Cross of Valour. He had no idea, however, that his rescue of a boy from a flooded storm water system would culminate in the end of his police career and leave his life hanging in the balance. The Cost of Bravery is a brutally frank and honest account of what happened to Allan after he saved young Jai’s life. It is a valuable insight into the debilitating mental illness of post-traumatic stress disorder, in Allan’s case caused by 20 years of exposure to the unimaginable horrors and trauma of police work. It is also a love story of the incredible relationship Allan shares with his wife and children that was tested in ways that few could ever contemplate.
