World War II battlefield
Capt Jay Ellul
WORLD War II veterans spent time
with troops deployed to the Middle
East Area of Operations at Al Minhad
Air Base on October 22.
The veterans were on their way
back to Australia after commemorating
the 70th anniversary of the Battle of El
Alamein in Egypt.
Commander JTF 633 Maj-Gen
Michael Crane said today's ADF owed
a great deal to these veterans for their
honour, courage and sacrifice in help-
ing to defend Australian principles.
"It is a privilege for all ADF person-
nel serving at Al Minhad Air Base to
meet some of Australia's finest soldiers
and we thank you for spending some
time with us," Maj-Gen Crane said.
The El Alamein veterans were
shown around the different areas of the
base before being taken to a demon-
stration of modern equipment.
The veterans were then hosted at
a special lunch where they were able
to share and swap stories with their
Department of Veterans' Affairs
Repatriation Commissioner Maj-Gen
Mark Kelly said spending time with the
veterans was something all task force
members would remember.
"Each serving member can take
great pride in knowing they follow in
the footsteps of these intrepid men and
are upholding the Australian values
these men fought so valiantly for 70
years ago," he said.
