Royal Military College Staff Cadet Richard Donahue (Ivanhoe, Melbourne, Vic) takes up position during a patrol on a stabilisation exercise in the Wide Bay training area, Queensland.
Staff cadets from the Royal Military College of Australia, Duntroon, have taken up residence in the southern Queensland towns of Tin Can Bay and Cooloola Cove as part of a four-week (4–31 March 2011) training exercise. The exercise tests and reinforces the skills the staff cadets will require leading soldiers on ‘stability’ operations such as those encountered by the Australian Defence Force in Timor Leste and the Solomon Islands.
