It is with great sadness that we acknowledge the death of an Australian Army soldier on 10 May at the Mount Bundey Training Area in the Northern Territory.
We acknowledge the superb work of the medics, platoon and AME staff and we’re grateful that all members are receiving psychological and pastoral support.
Whether on deployment or while training, the men and women of the Australian Defence Force undertake hazardous activities to ensure our safety and security.
Labor will request a briefing on this incident at an appropriate time in the future.
We extend our deepest personal sympathies to the soldier’s family, friends and ADF colleagues.
