AUSTRALIA will support Papua New
Guinea in the lead up to national elec-
tions in June, Defence Minister Stephen
Smith announced during an Anzac Day
visit to Australia's northern neighbour.
Speaking at a media conference, Mr
Smith said Australia would provide two
civilian helicopters to help with trans-
port during the election.
"This will also form the basis for the
Papua New Guinea Defence Force long-
er-term aviation capability," he said.
Also visiting the country for
Anzac Day was CA Lt-Gen David
Morrison, who met with Papua New
Guinea's Defence Force commander
and Secretary for Defence at Murray
Lt-Gen Morrison also watched a
demonstration at the 1st Bn Royal
Pacific Islands Regt at Taurama
He said the relationship between
Australia and Papua New Guinea was
vitally important to both countries.
"We've had a strong relationship
with Papua New Guinea for more than
100 years," he said.
"The relationship between the
Australian Army and Papua New Guinea
Defence Force is also very strong and
will continue with further training
activities planned over the next couple

THE 39th Battalion banner was
held high with pride by an Army
Cadet during Anzac Day in Papua
CUO Nicholas Dolling, of the
Southport School Army Cadet Unit,
accompanied CA Lt-Gen David
Morrison and four veterans from the
CUO Dolling said he had been
excited about the trip since receiving
his invitation and thought it would be
an amazing opportunity.
"I wasn't really sure what was
going to happen," he said.
"I was told I'd be travelling to
Papua New Guinea with the CA and
his staff and be the custodian for the
39th Battalion banner."
Up early for the dawn service,
CUO Dolling was impressed with the
service at the Bomana War Cemetery.
At the completion of the dawn ser-
vice, he then accompanied the CA on
a trip to Isurava on the Kokoda Track,
flying across Papua New Guinea by
He said he felt proud to be
Australian after seeing the crowd's
warm welcome as the World War II
veterans stepped from the helicopter.
"Seeing the veterans back at
Kokoda and the welcome they
received was quite an experience," he
"It was really nice being up there
with the veterans."
Lt-Gen Morrison said it was a great
idea to include someone from the next
generation on the visit for the 70th
anniversary of the Kokoda campaign.
"We approached the school and
asked for the senior cadet under officer
to be released to accompany the veter-
ans and myself to Papua New Guinea,"
"The Southport school had a very
strong cadet unit and were the custodi-
ans of the 39th Battalion banner."
Looking back on his visit to Papua
New Guinea, CUO Dolling said he
would be back to visit in the future.
"I'm looking to continue my ser-
vice and join the Army in the future, in
what capacity though I'm not sure yet."

banner during his visit to Papua New Guinea for Anzac Day.
