ANZAC Day in Melbourne 2010.
There is a competition being run by Colin Bartholomew for a banner design to show the coming together of the Regiments. This may well be the last sighting of the old Banner.
Leading the March Craig and President Shorty, supported by the fresh troops bolstering the heretofore dwindling ranks.

Craig leads 2010 March
We could see the inevitability of the new banner, but were completely unprepared for the morale desroying ill informed decision to ban the black beret. It came as a sickening below the belt blow which will take time and effort by right thinking ex soldiers to reverse. In the meantime NT won the competition for the new banner with a symbolically significant design showing the original grandparent flag " Old Mud Blood and Greenfields overlaid by next generation symbol commando squadron in turn overlaid by this currently, fighting on multiple fronts, generation symbol of Courage and Colours. Featured here on Foundation day November 3 2010 being presented to Victorian branch at the commemoration ceremony at The Shrine of Remembrance Melbourne by Serving 2 Cav NT branch members Robert Webb and Phillip Hinds
A PRESENT FROM NT BRANCH THANKS
At the same ceremony there were a couple of defiant BLACK BERETS that are not likely to be deterred by any thoughtless ban.

Then came the history making ANZAC Day March of 2011 seen her led by Ben Horton and Shorty with the new Banner followed by a solid contingent from 2 Cav and the descendants of originals with a good showing of Black Berets.
