Operation TAMAR Honoured

The bravery and sacrifice of the veterans of Operation TAMAR, the United Nations Assistance Mission in Rwanda, was commemorated on Saturday in a service conducted by Governor-General David Hurley. The Meritorious Unit Citation Warrant was presented to each service chief on behalf of the 14 Royal Australian Navy, 629 Australian Army and 44 Royal Australian Air Force personnel who risked their lives to rescue survivors of the Kibeho Massacre.

The Virtual War Memorial wish to also to honour to these brave Australians, in particular our own Colonel Steve Larkins OAM, who served as part of the 9th Combat Service Support Battalion.
