GROUP and individual nominations are
being called for the inaugural Defence
Excellence in Security Awards.
The new security award initiative was
announced on August 15 with nominations
open until October 17.
The Deputy Secretary Intelligence and
Security and Defence's Agency Security
Executive, Stephen Merchant, announced
the awards and called for nominations
from the APS, ADF and Defence Industry
Security Program members.
Mr Merchant said the awards were
established to honour and celebrate out-
standing achievements in security by those
working for Defence.
"There are many unsung heroes -- some
in formal security roles, others not -- who
are doing outstanding work in security
every day," he said.
Four award categories are available,
focusing on key Defence and defence
industry audiences -- security specialists,
leaders, teams and individuals.
Mr Merchant said nominations could
focus on responses to security incidents,
improvements to workplace security or
demonstrated commitment to exceptional
security practice in everyday work.
The awards program is being managed
by the Defence Security Authority and
will culminate in an awards ceremony in
Canberra in March 2012.
Up to three finalists will be identified for
each category and invited to the ceremony,
where the winners will be announced and
presented with trophies.

Crete campaign and buried at the Suda

an understanding of the battlefield where
my great uncle fought and died," she said.
"It was very special to visit his grave
within the now beautiful surrounds of
The study tour visited various bat-
tlefield locations on the Greece mainland
and the island of Crete, and was accom-
panied by the respected ADF military his-

the personnel who participated.
