SOLDIERS from across
Arnhem Land concentrated
in Nhulunbuy to revise
surveillance skills before
they conduct Op Resolute patrols in
The 22 soldiers revised weapon
handling, watercraft and patrolling
skills ahead of a full mission profile
surveillance exercise close to shore in
the two-week training activity.
The exercise provided opportunity
to build leadership experience among
the junior NCOs, with LCpl Vinnie
