program to offer serving troops and veter-
ans free car washes on November 11-12.

ticipate in the program and several busi-
nesses have already signed on.
The program works on the honour

TEN clearance divers from Australian Clearance
Diving Team 1 joined reservists from MUR
for Combat Arms Module (CAM) and Infantry
Module 2 courses at Puckapunyal last month.
The courses, run by MUR's Soldier Training
Wing, train soldiers in infantry minor tactics for
section and platoon-level operations. The clear-
ance divers attended to gain a basic foundation in
infantry fighting skills.
The divers picked up the weapons qualifica-
tions easily during the CAM and continued the
high standard throughout the Module 2 course.
The course covered defensive, offensive and
security operations, which the divers were experi-
encing for the first time.
The instructors were impressed with their
enthusiasm for the training and the speed with
which they picked up the new skills, complet-
ing the culminating exercises -- live fire section
attacks by day and night -- to a high standard.
It was the first time Navy personnel had been
integrated into a MUR course. The divers were
well received by staff and the Army trainees.
The Soldier Training Wing conducts MUR's
courses throughout the year to ensure a constant
flow of qualified personnel.
