Join us as Authors Les Parsons and Dr Samantha Battams talk about the story of a pivotal figure in early aviation in South Australia and through his pilot training role throughout the world.

Captain Harry Butler was a national hero in the 1920s. Hailed as a top aviator, his legacy continues to this day yet has been largely forgotten. The book Red Devil covers Butler's childhood in the tiny farming community of Minlaton, where he was inspired by stories of early flight experimentation, to his role as a senior flying instructor in the Royal Flying Corps in England and his post-war experiences.
