Release content

11 May 2017

It is with great sadness I acknowledge the death of an Australian Army soldier on 10 May at the Mount Bundey Training Area in the Northern Territory.

Whether on deployment or while training, the men and women of the Australian Defence Force undertake hazardous activities to ensure our safety and security.

On behalf of the Government I extend my deepest personal sympathies to the soldier's family, friends and ADF colleagues.
