Speaking of insider news, what's this story about the yanks flogging ol' skippy from 2 RAR on TS?


6's just went missing while TS was on. Has the story got twisted, or has there been a run on big skippy badges?

AussieArmy was started by one of the kids from here. Diggerz is the one that Michael Wass from Heritage Medals ran. That crew has migrated to Facebook. They have a page, but mostly interact on each other's feeds.


Diggerz, that's the one, I remember when it was full on including the chat room, its membership was mostly ex or retired members and then it slowly, slowly died through lack of participation.

Facebook really killed that one off, maybe a change in platform that didn't pan out helped it along, it's been a good long while. The core community remained pretty tight though and we've seen the same with the militaryphotos/themess communities managing to find a couple of new homes on facebook and on another forum (militaryimages.net).

Brotherhood never was like it;
Friendship is not the word;
But deep in that body of marching men
The soul of a nation stirred.

-- A.B. "Banjo" Patterson,

AusMilitary.com is Australia's leading military discussion forum. Originally formed back in 2004 as AusSpecialForces.com as a forum for, by, and about the Australian Special Forces, the forum has since widened it's scope to include all members and branches of the ADF as well as our honoured guests and allies from overseas. Despite some sections being open to the public, the forum still enjoys the membership and advice of respected members of the Special Forces and Special Operations Forces both local and international, as well as those from elite specialities in the conventional forces. From recruit training right up to SF selection tips - if it's frank and honest advice you're after, you'll find it here.
