MEMBERS of 1 Bde made their way
home to Darwin on June 9 as part of
the 260 troops who have completed
their eight-month deployment in East
The returning soldiers were part
of the ISF's Combat Services Support
Team and were primarily drawn from
1CER and 1CSR and comprised
engineers and members of Forece
Communications Element 4 (FCE 4).
ISF engineers were engaged in a
range of support roles, including assist-
ing with the refurbishment of schools
in regional East Timor and upgrad-
ing defence facilities with the East
Timorese Defence Force.
FCE 4 comprised 25 members from
1CSR who provided strategic communi-
cations to Australia and tactical commu-
nications within East Timor to support
the operations of the ISF.
FCE 4 also provided and maintained
the welfare phones and internet systems
at Australia's four Dili bases to enable
ISF personnel to contact their families.
ISF Commander Col Michael Reilly
said during its deployment, TLTG 2
had achieved significant professional
growth and capability enhancement.
"It has also increased individual and
collective training standards and suc-
cessfully completed mission-specific
MORE than 100 ARes soldiers from
11 Bde in Queensland arrived home
from East Timor after a successful
eight-month deployment on June 12.
The troops deployed to East Timor
from early October 2010 as mem-
bers of Anzac Coy, which formed the
main element of Task Force Timor-
Leste 2 (TLTG 2), which is part of the
International Stabilisation Force (ISF).
Anzac Coy consisted of a headquar-
ters element and three infantry platoons,
totalling about 160 personnel from
11 Bde, as well as an attached New
ISF Commander Col Michael Reilly
has praised the troops for their dedica-
tion and professionalism.
"The members of Anzac Company
provided an effective and committed
capability to the ISF," Col Reilly said.
"Their hard work and dedication ena-
bled the ISF to continue its very worthy
mission in East Timor."
During the deployment, the troops
provided a rapid response capabil-
ity and conducted numerous patrols
throughout the capital, Dili, and region-
al and remote areas.
Significantly, Anzac Coy comprised
only ARes members and was also the
first stand-alone deployment of an ARes
company to East Timor.
OC Anzac Coy Maj Rob Brennan
said there were benefits to deploying
reservists on operations.
"I think reservists are extremely
well-suited to the job we were doing in
East Timor," Maj Brennan said. "Their
experience and skills learned in civilian
life certainly helped them in liaising
with communities and mixing well.
"My troops worked alongside their
New Zealand counterparts both in oper-
ational tasks and training activities with
the East Timorese Defence Forces and
with the US Marines and Navy."
The returning 11 Bde contingent
has been replaced by a similar num-
ber of ARes personnel, primarily drawn
from 8 Bde in the Sydney region, with
support from soldiers from 3 Bde in
