    Hi Mate, I had the same thought as i have posted a couple of hundred on the daily threads over the last year and it seemed a shame not to have an Australian Defence Force thread ! I know there was an older thread that mainly had Vietnam/Malaya/WW1/2 photos and there is a very hit and miss thread with Australian Special Forces but nothing for the bulk of the Defence Forces. Anyway, I hope it keeps going and people like it so we shall see how it goes

    I have to say though having the tankies playing around your position wouldn't thrill me......the buggers are lethal at the best of times

    Default 2/17 RNSWR Rifle Company Butterworth

    [FONT=Verdana]Late in 2000-01 the Battalion provided volunteers for a 3-month deployment to RAAF base Butterworth in Malaysia.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana]
    This was the first time that Reserve soldiers were deployed as base security in a foreign country. The soldiers who were chosen to provide the security elements following undertook a rigorous selection course that tested their soldiering and teamwork abilities. Soldiers who made the grade then embarked on the deployment and undertook extensive training in Jungle Warfare and all aspects of their military skills.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana]
    While these men received intensive jungle training in Malaysia, they still had time to experience the Malaysian culture and see a few sights! Most soldiers took leave within the region.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana]
    Many of the soldiers who undertook the deployment returned from service highly skilled and experienced. These men and women became the cornerstone of our High Readiness Company - soldiers in the Battalion who are on a heightened readiness to reinforce Australian Regular Forces.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana]
    The Battalion will return to Malaysia in the coming years while some of the men who went to Butterworth in 2000-01 have gone on to serve in East Timor.[/FONT]
