we will remember them

The hazards of being deployed on even the smallest mission can be greater than expected.
This Roll of Honour has been created to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice
since the commencement of Australia's commitment to Peacekeeping and Peacemaking missions.



They shall grow not old
As we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them,
Nor the years condemn;
At the going down of the sun
And in the morning
We Will Remember Them.

LEST WE FORGET
