'AUSTRALIA WAS BORN
ON THE SHORES OF GALLIPOLI' --
1915 - 1923
with each medallion
Anation is defined by the strength of character of its
people. None more so than Australia. On an April day
in 1915, a group of ordinary men fought for freedom in
a foreign land. Some lived, many died and from their
sacrifice grew a legend which defines who we are as Australians. Now, the Gallipoli story -- your story -- is retold in
a new gallery of museum-quality bronze medallions, each one recalling a pivotal moment in the Gallipoli campaign
and what it means to be Australian.
Custom-designed by Master Craftsmen and precision struck
The premiere medallion "Heroism" depicts a raised-relief image of two diggers, heroes and mates to the end, charging
up Anzac Cove. The reverse is equally impressive, detailing the people, places and events of 25th April, 1915. As the
collection continues, you'll witness more attributes of the Australian digger -- Daring, Bravery and Mateship -- building
into one of the most comprehensive testaments to our national identity ever created. Plus, each medallion arrives with a
FREE informative booklet, recalling the attributes and events depicted on the medallion in fascinating detail. Your FREE
custom-crafted presentation case, with a clear lid for easy viewing, arrives with Issue Two "Initiative".

"We had our fingers crossed, just in case
one dropped short," he said.
"The US forces always kept us in the loop,
as we were in contact with them on a daily
basis. We would communicate what we saw
and heard to support their intelligence picture
and likewise they would pass information on
"As MPs have been involved with Secdet
since its inception in 2003, it was a highlight
for us as the MP HQ to see it finish and hand
over the responsibilities."
Since the end of Operation Iraqi Freedom
combat operations in 2003, the ADF has
provided dedicated security to Australian
Government officials working in Iraq.
Initially deployed under Operation Catalyst,
Secdet transitioned to Operation Kruger on
July 1, 2008, and remained in Baghdad after
the completion of the ADF's commitment to
the rehabilitation of Iraq in mid 2009.
In consultation with the Department of
Foreign Affairs and Trade, the transition to pri-
vate security started in 2009 and Secdet started
to scale down from an infantry company sup-
ported by cavalry and military police to the
recent capability of a close protection element
provided by the military police only.
Secdet 18 personnel departed Iraq on
August 6, 2011 and most returned to their
home unit of D Coy, 1 MP Bn in Brisbane, the
MP unit which provides close protection and
dog handler support.
