THE soldiers of Baghdad Security Detachment 17
handed over Australian embassy security duties to

The 33-member Secdet comprised mainly 2 Cav

Commander of Australian Forces in the Middle

accomplished its mission of supporting Australian
"Although security in Baghdad is improving, it's
essential our embassy staff are protected while under-
taking their important duties," he said.
"Your contribution in providing security has been
invaluable to the successful Australian diplomatic
mission in Iraq."
The ADF has been providing security to the
Australian Embassy in Bagdad for eight years.
During the deployment, Secdet 17 supported
more than 1127 security activities for embassy staff,
averaging five separate tasks a day.
OC Maj Shaun Richards said his unit had contin-
ued the achievements of previous deployments and
maintained the ADF's professional reputation abroad.
"Our efforts in providing security to the Australian
Embassy in a difficult environment have allowed the
diplomatic effort to succeed in its mission to promote
Australia's national interests," he said.
The 1 MP Bn Secdet rotation is expected to be the
last of Operation Kruger. Embassy security responsi-
bilities are likely to be managed by a civilian contrac-
tor when the MPs depart in eight months.
