– 30th April 2018
I’m kind of glad not to be in uniform anymore. 22 years in uniform followed by 13 years as a defence civilian makes me proud but in the last 5 or so years I dismay at the lack of real defence leadership headed now by the least qualified Defence Minister ever appointed, Ms Payne. Now out of uniform, if I was ever to meet our defence chiefs, I wouldn’t be raising my hand to salute them. Address would be “Sir” or “Ma’am” but only to recognize the royal commission by which they are empowered and which unfortunately some of them seem to hold in contempt.
Yes, the new defence logo by Zeg seems stylish but totally inappropriate.
