Much can be learned from the past and Army constantly draws on the importance of its comparatively young but rich history. These origins have provided the forms for its badges, insignia and symbols of office; the way Army demonstrates respect for the past through formal functions and dinners, the way it addresses its people and the way they wear their uniform. These tangible links to Army’s past, like the weft and warp of a rich historical tapestry, set it up well for its furture. Just as Army respects its past, it and its people will respect it today and tomorrow.
This thoroughly researched and beautifully presented full color edition of Preserving Our Proud Heritage: Customs and Traditions of the Australian Army includes a companion CD of the Australian Army’s Regimental marches and bugle calls, assembled together for the very first time.
