Commanding Officer's Dispatch 2012

Courage 

A Message from the Commanding Officer 2nd Cavalry Regiment to all the members of 2/6 Cavalry Commandos Association.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

It is indeed a great honour to be able to provide a few brief words of  address for your Foundation Day Anniversary. Your history, legacy and achievements are well known to many of the troopers in the Regiment, and indeed many of us have trodden the same areas where you valiantly and stoically served (albeit with a few less Frenchmen and nowhere near as many Japanese).

I want to reassure you that the linkage that this Unit and your Association has, plays a very strong role in reinforcing a strong ethic of service, selflessness and courage in our young men and women. On many occasions during tough times, I find myself flicking through your history, "To the Green Fields Beyond" to seek some example of tenacity, bravery, courage to meet the challenges of today's modern Army.
Needless to say I don't have to look very far.

To you all good luck, the best of health and good spirits.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you, "Courage".

Mick Bye
