    Did they purchase holsters with them? As I've only seen SF troops with BHI Serpas.

    From what I've seen, Safariland holsters are favoured.

    Sea force conquers the desert

    The first bomb you defuse is always the hardest, especially if you're under enemy fire and you know the bomb is powerful enough to turn an armoured vehicle into scrap metal.

    So says Leading Seaman B, and he should know.

    The 30-year-old is part of an elite branch of the Royal Australian Navy based in Rockingham, a group of men whose nerves of steel and specialist training has placed them on the front line in Afghanistan, Australia's flesh and blood weapons in the deadly fight against insurgent bombs.

    I'm Australian which means to reach adulthood I've survived horrors you couldn't imagine.

    Default Raising of the Australian Special Operations Engineer Regiment

    [FONT=Verdana]The Chief of Army, Lieutenant General David Morrison announced the raising of the newest unit in the Australian Army, the Special Operations Engineer Regiment (SOER). The announcement coincided with a ceremony held at Holsworthy Barracks in Sydney. [/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana]The Incident Response Regiment (IRR) was taken off the Army’s Order of Battle and replaced by the newly named SOER. The new unit reflects the distinct roles and capabilities of the SOER, which differ from those of conventional Engineer units, whilst still retaining ties to the Corps of Royal Australian Engineers. [/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana]The SOER provided two separate practical capability demonstrations at Holsworthy, a Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear or Explosive (CBRNE) neutralisation task and an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) clearance. [/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana]The Special Operations Commander Australia, Major General Gus Gilmore also took the opportunity to meet the soldiers of the SOER to personally thank them for their work in supporting operations both domestically and overseas, and paid tribute to their fallen comrades.[/FONT]


    Members of the newly raised Special Operations Engineer Regiment stand at attention in front of the new unit flag during the flag raising ceremony held at Holsworthy Barracks.

    Default Helicopter dock ships boost defence

    THE arrival in 2014 of the first of two 27,000-tonne Landing Helicopter Dock warships represents the biggest change to Australia's "force projection capability" since the navy's first aircraft carrier was acquired more than 60 years ago, Defence Force chief General David Hurley said yesterday.

    .......Much would be learnt from the shared experiences of the US Marine Corps, units of which will soon to be based in Darwin, and its British counterpart, the Royal Marines, General Hurley said........
