The Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) farewelled the Australian and New Zealand Defence Force personnel last Friday at the Queen Elizabeth Barrack, Officers Mass in Nabua. Working with the RFMF personnel for almost two months, the ADF has delivered critical aid supplies to the people of Fiji and helped to repair schools, community centres and hospitals.

Over the next week, around 200 ADF personnel will return to Australia. The ADF contingent  Commander Lieutenant Colonel Scott Hill, said: “We have made a lot of friendships that will endure well into the future.”
