Military Biography

From Quaker schoolboy to
Australian SAS soldier

Indebted is not your usual military autobiography. ‘Sketchy’s’ easy-to-read memoir is a humorous and thought-provoking insight into jungle warfare, the training culture of the Special Air Service and his outstanding military career.

❝I loved this book. It is pithy and pungent, always insightful, often hilarious❞
– General Sir Peter Cosgrove, AK, MC (Retd)


‘As lonely as a bastard on Father’s Day’

Follow Col ‘Sketchy’ Moyle’s journey from humble beginnings in rural Tasmania, along his decorated career in the Australian Army and retirement as an elite member of the Australian Special Air Service.

Col’s story is one of determination, courage and perseverance in the face of extreme physical and psychological stress, but is not without amusement and a hearty chuckle or two.

Indebted is a powerful book that captures the spirit of the men and women who fight to protect our country.

❛Colin and I went to war together, many years ago…

If I could bottle ‘essence of Moyle’, I would inoculate every Army recruit with it on Day 1. They’d get courage in abundance, wisdom, shrewdness, toughness leavened by compassion and endless good humour.

…Col’s love of family, the Army and Australia calls from its pages. It is a fascinating and compelling yarn.❜
