Paul Muscat was a simple radio operator at the Recce Flt and never ventured outside the wire. I'd say the only time he did go outside the wire was when he went on R&R. Yep, he sure is a hero.

Keith Joyce....former RSL President, criminal, fraud and medal cheat.
Phil Aplin..........VVAA member, regular soldier and puppy dog follower of Quigley. No brains.
Paul Muscat......served in 161 Recee Flight in Vietnam and VVMC member. Quigley loyal supporter.
Graham Jensen....national serviceman and former Secretary to Joyce in the RSL.
John Elson....town gossip and mouth.
Alan [Jack] Parr...national serviceman, self styled hero of the Battle of Coral, Bartkus supporter.
Jim Drever...ex RAAF Warrant Officer, formerly of Rockhampton, one of Joyce's right hand men, ran the two up on Anzac Days when Joyce was RSL President and skimmed money off the top, smashed a glass over the head of a patron at the Frenchville sports club, banned, wife left him, former ANZMI member until ANZMI threw him out for being an idiot.

This just poped up on a Cav forum.

Dr Brendan Nelson, Director, Australian War Memorial: Demand that the Australian War Memorial formally recognise the 2nd D and E Platoon

 
        Don Tate
Albion Park Rail, Australia

 
 
 
   Sign Don's petition

   
 

 

The 2nd D&E Platoon was formed by Major George Pratt in May 1969 to deal with an immediate strategic development during the Vietnam War.

It comprised 40 regular soldiers who had previously reinforced the 4th Battalion (4RAR) and was led (initially) by Lt Barry Parkin, then by Corporal Jim Riddle.

It carried out a number of successful actions against the Viet Cong, especially at the Thua Tich ambush on May 29th 1969, and was recognised as one of the most successful infantry platoons from the war.
In 2008, the federal government formally recognised the 2nd D&E Platoon in a statement by the Hon Mike Kelly MP.

In 2014, the Hon Stuart Robert MP (Assistant Minister for Defence) stated that it was 'indisputable that everyone concerned with it, be they Headquarters Company, the Cavalry Squadron or other units, as the '2nd D&E Platoon'.

Unfortunately, no paperwork was done to verify the platoon's existence, but the Australian War Memorial refuses to release 235 documents (1000 pages) relating to this platoon which might explain why there is no official record of it.

Failure to formally recognise the 2nd D&E Platoon impacts the integrity of the service records of all the men who fought in it.
The Australian War Memorial is a statute body and should reflect the accuracy of the nation's military history as accurately as possibly, not depend on the whims of non-combatant who maintain the records.
