De­fence uni­form de­ci­sion is mad­ness

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

I WATCHED a pro­gram re­cently on ABC TV on the chang­ing of the Aus­tralian de­fence uni­form since the First World War.

They went through the process of de­sign and colour and said that the pow­ers-that-be had de­cided to re­vert to the orig­i­nal colours of WWI by pop­u­lar de­mand.

Fair enough, I thought, as I liked the new uni­form, but the com­men­ta­tor then fin­ished off with: “The prod­uct is now made in China”.

I would like to know who the Min­is­ter was who signed off on this deal and do they re­alise the pos­si­bil­i­ties of their ac­tions. Ah me! I think we have lost the plot.

David Har­ris, Lyn­wood.
