AS A snapshot of what the
ARes has to offer, 9 Bde’s
careers day had it all –
pyrotechnics, smoke, con-
tact drills, military hard-
ware and career displays.
The event at Warradale
Barracks in Adelaide on
October 18 drew more than
300 prospective recruits.
S03 Recruiting HQ 9
Bde WO1 Phillip Munro
said the purpose of the day
was to showcase the bri-
gade’s diverse skills and
“It provided an opportu-
nity for members of the pub-
lic who have expressed an
interest in joining the ARes
to talk with the soldiers and
gain a hands-on appreciation
of Army life,” he said.
On the day an additional
80 people registered inter-
est in joining 9 Bde. More
than 60 personnel from
HQ 9 Bde, 144 Sig Sqn,
9CSSB, 10/27RSAR, 3/9LH
(SAMR), 48 Fd Bty, 3 Fd
were involved in the activity.

IN A simple ceremony that marked an
outstanding unit accomplishment and
a significant change in technical regu-
latory policy, 8/9RAR was recently
certified as an Accredited Maintenance
The accreditation comes after the unit
was re-raised in January 2008 and repre-
sents a remarkable achievement for the
unit, which is still developing under the
Enhanced Land Force project.
Director Technical Regulation – Army
(DTR-A) Col Jim Phasey presented CO
8/9RAR Lt-Col Simon Stuart with the
AMO certificate on October 29.
Col Phasey congratulated the unit on
its accreditation and its demonstrated
commitment to equipment management
He urged the unit to continue to
review and strengthen its operator and
technical maintenance procedures, and
to embed these into its culture to ensure
the required levels of equipment avail-
ability and the highest level of equip-
The AMO certificate presented to
8/9RAR was the first issued to an Army
unit by DTR-A . Under a new policy
within the Technical Regulation of ADF
Materiel Manual – Land, due for release
in December, all units will be assessed
for compliance with the technical regula-
tory framework and will receive AMO
certification direct from DTR-A.
Lt-Col Stuart commended his unit
members, particularly his maintenance
staff, for their efforts in preparing the
unit to become an AMO and achieving
what he termed “a minor miracle” in
such a short period.
Certification as an AMO will enable
the unit to maintain technical integrity
and enhance its combat effectiveness.

unit’s certification as an Accredited Maintenance Organisation.
