Quiet, unassuming with a knack for cutting himself, Bruce has built more armour in his time with the Redback Garrison than most members.

Adam Clarke

Garrison Event Co-ordinator

Adam joined the Redback Garrison family in November 2012. Starting with a Sandtrooper, he then decided to take a “cooler” option also and become a Snowtrooper. This master “Photobomber” Snowtrooper is known for making frequent trips down the coast to Brisbane and surrounds from his home region of Hervey Bay. In 2015, he became a Garrison Event Co-ordinator, assisting Bullant in the role. This was a proud moment in his 501st life, only recently topped by being appointed as the Squad Leader of the Redback Garrison’s new “Razorbacks Squad”. Keep an eye out in your photo’s, you never know when he will pop up.
