Comments: The fascinating biography of Major General Alan Stretton.

Major General Alan Bishop Stretton AO CBE (born on 30 September 1922) is a former senior Australian Army officer.

He came to public prominence through his work in the cleanup efforts at Darwin in the aftermath of Cyclone Tracy. He was jointly named the 1975 Australian of the Year, with Sir John Cornforth.

He is a former Deputy Director of the Joint Intelligence Organization and member of the National Intelligence Committee.

In August 2004 he publicly criticised the Australian Government's policy of involvement with the 2003 Invasion of Iraq, in an open letter in which he stated:

"The alleged connection between Saddam Hussein and al-Qa'ida is ludicrous."

In 1946 and 1947 he played 16 games of Australian rules football in the Victoran Football League with St Kilda.
