"I only have to look at the recent
bravery award and group bravery
commendation to 15 sailors for their
actions in SIEV 36 to see our peo-
ple making Navy proud, and mak-
ing Australia proud."

Nigel Carlton said.
The Pulse survey involved partici-

the Navy, reviewing their colleagues'
behaviour against the Signature
Behaviours and vice versa, giving a
shapshot of how the behaviours are
