- 236 – The breadth of presentations was nothing less than mind-blowing; my brain was twisted sideways as I tried to put the many seemingly unrelated topics into some order. Lieutenant Geneal Peter Leahy (Rtd) gave an excellent overview of Force 2030 and how our capability planning relates to the geo-political realm. After syndicate discussions on numerous threads, we were fortunate to hear from a visiting Canadian Army Officer, Lieutenant Colonel Marco Rancourt ,who gave us a first hand account of a critical national incident where the gradual diminishing of professional military conduct lead to the murder of a civilian boy in Somalia in 1993. Unfortunately, the essence of the problem was not terribly different from recent problems highlighted in the HMAS Success inquiry. The Canadian incident took ten years to repair public confidence, and stands as an example of the potential for catastrophe when poor people-management, poor ethical and professional conduct, and the media-political machine collide. On a lighter note, we were treated to an excellent lecture by one of Australia’s foremost First World War historians, Dr. Peter Stanley, who has looked deeply into the ‘larrikinism’ that has existed throughout our military history, and what positive effect this spirit continues to play within our Defence culture. At this point, a theme was emerging from many of the presenters highlighting that we can enjoy ourselves and embrace the larrikin spirit; indeed this is what makes us unique as a fighting force. But we need to be aware of society’s expectations of us, and have the self-control to know where to draw the line, or have the courage to speak up when necessary. Our syndicate discussions reflected some of the challenges that face the ADF, including the pressure we are under as Defence members to be seen to uphold professional and personal standards at a higher level than the general population. We also had some interesting debate about equity in our organisation and particularly the topic of women in combat. Interestingly, it was some of the female participants who were passionately opposed to the changes. I was surprised to hear hardened male combat veterans, up to the most senior members present, advocate for equality in our male-only units. At this stage I really appreciated what a progressive organisation we work in, and what great potential we exhibit as a team. On a daily level we tend to take ourselves for granted; the forum certainly made me aware that we are individually diverse and unique, as are our workplaces, but collectively we accept change readily and get things done. In the evening we enjoyed a formal mess dinner hosted by the Vice Chief of the Defence Force Air Marshall Mark Binskin, during which we were given the chance to network with members in all fields, and across all ranks. Consequently, all of us left having a deeper appreciation for each other’s service cultures, roles, and challenges. I was quite taken aback by the level of professional pride in the room when we discussed what we do as units, and how we contribute to the ‘big goals’. I must add that I wasn’t disparaged as a mere ‘bandy’ once throughout the conference. In fact I felt equally respected by everyone I talked with, including Special Forces soldiers, CSOs and clerks who were all interested in how our Band branch fits into the picture and how we go about our core business. This went to the highest level, as a senior HQ-JOC officer became totally wound up telling me about his love of jazz and playing trumpet. I left with a stronger sense of purpose and a realisation that what we do may seem insignificant in the daily grind, but we are a crucial part of the whole support structure. Overall, the forum was certainly a career highlight. I was particularly pleased to have been given the opportunity to toast ‘Our Men and Women’ at the dining-in night sitting adjacent to the Warrant Officer of the Navy, with whom I shared some discussion about New Generation Navy and the positive change I see it having on our service culture, particularly when compared to a number of civilian jobs I experienced before I re-joined. I would strongly recommend to my colleagues to put forward nominations for the next forum. It is an excellent opportunity to think about our military music profession in the perspective of the greater organisation, and to consider what more we can do to enhance our relations with internal customers, instil public confidence, and enhance our image as a Profession of Arms.
