Andrew Fisher, Australian Prime MInister three times from 1908-1915. He gave us the Commonwealth Bank, old age pensions, a transcontinental rail line, laid the foundation stone for Canberra and took Australians into the First World War and Gallipoli. He was one of Australia's great nation-builders, yet his story is largely, and unjustly, unknown.
