- 41 – RAN BAND DEPLOYMENT TO WASHINGTON AND PEARL HARBOUR MEETING 13 SEPTEMBER 2006 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Purpose 1. Next year marks the 65 th Anniversary of the Battle of the Coral Sea and the 65 th Anniversary of the Battle of Midway. Both of these battles are landmark events impacting on the history of Australia and the United States of America. 2. This agendum paper seeks, as its central purpose, funds to deploy a contingent of the RAN Band to Washington and Pearl Harbour to commemorate the 65 th Anniversary of the Battle of the Coral Sea: a battle in which HMAS Australia and HMAS Hobart joined forces with USS Lexington and USS Yorktown to turn back enemy naval thrusts, for the first time, in the Pacific war. Additional support would be provided to the Australian Ambassador in Washington by deploying a small advance party to commemorate: a. the 90 th Anniversary of the first occasion in which Australian and US Forces fought in battle side by side; 1 b. activities marking the largest migration of Australians to leave Australia; 2 c. the 92 nd Anniversary of ANZAC Day; and d. the 56 th Anniversary of the signing of the ANZUS Treaty. 3. This proposal needs to be dealt with by CNSAC due to the level of additional funds being sought and its potential to attract interest by MINDEF. Objective 4. The objective of this proposal is to use the RAN Band as a vehicle in which to advance the Australia-United States friendship, promote Australia’s security interests, 3 and advance the RAN- USN relationship. 4 Workforce 5. The deployment will comprise 51 musicians from the RAN Band, one medical rating and one photographer. Scope exists for senior RAN representatives to visit Washington and Pearl Harbour in and around the period of the deployment to capitalise on and add to the goodwill that will be generated by the band’s performances. Resource Implications 6. The proposed deployment will be conducted in three separate stages: a. Stage One. Deployment to Washington of an advance party comprising 14 musicians to assist the Australian Ambassador from 15 to 30 Apr 07. b. Stage Two. Deployment to Washington of an additional 39 personnel from 30 Apr to 7 May 07. c. Stage Three. Deployment of 21 personnel from Washington to Pearl Harbour from 8 to 13 May 07 with the remaining members returning to Australia. 7. The total estimated cost is in the order of $444,968 (economy class) and $721,893 (business class). However, costs can be reduced by omitting the first or third stages of the deployment. 1 HADS in Washington has indicated the 17 Apr 07 is the key date being considered to mark this occasion. 2 Cultural Advisor in Washington has indicated that various ceremonies to mark this occasion will be held during the period 17-24 Apr 07. 3 Mission—Head of the Australian Defence Staff Washington 4 Mission—Naval Attaché to Washington Royal Australian Navy Band: A Musical Voyage
