‘OUT OF THE SHADOWS’

‘OUT OF THE SHADOWS’ AUSTRALIA’S SPECIAL FORCES Peter Beesley (ACA Victoria) viewing the VC collection with Brendan Nelson Director of the Australian War Memorial. Last year the Australian War Memorial launched a very special exhibition on our Special Forces. Special Forces soldiers were at the forefront of Australia's war in Afghanistan for 16 years, and yet little is publicly known about the work they did there. Developed in partnership with Special Operations Command, this exhibition casts a rare light on those men and women who operate in the shadows. It will display over 600 objects, most of which have never been seen before by the Australian public. There are displays of equipment from the Commandos of WW2, such as the canoes similar to the ones used in the raid on Singapore Harbour in 1943 right through to the more modern equipment used in Afghanistan. The collection was assembled over 12 months from various museums and History Centres from Special Forces units throughout Australia. AWM director Brendan Nelson said while it was hard to tell the special forces story because of the secrecy surrounding their work, it was important. Australian Special Forces include the Special Air Service Regiment, the 1st and 2nd Commando Regiments and the Special Operations Engineer Regiment. The exhibition continues until October 2018. Vehicles in use in Afghanistan. 18 COMMANDO NEWS ~ Edition 12 I 2018
