Aborginal Norforce Soldiers

Stock Photography By David C Hancock

Norforce soldiers patrol the northern shores of Australia - the group is a valuable reconnaissance unit of the Australian Army. More than 60 per cent of Norforce's soldiers are Aboriginal men and women who serve on a part-time basis. Technically, they are on duty all the time when in their communities, keeping watch for illegal entries and any other suspicious activities in remote locations.
