Article Rewrite[edit]

I am currently working on rewriting this article as large sections of it look like they've been taken nearly word for word from 2005 RAR Regimental Standing Orders, Chapter 6. So far I have reworked the Korea and Malayan Emergency sections. I will get on to Vietnam and after sometime this week hopefully. I have sources up to and including East Timor 2000-01, but not really after that, so if anyone feels like they want to have a go at those, that would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.

I have now completed re-writing the Introduction and Vietnam War sections. Anything after that still needs to be reworked as per above. I have, however, grouped together a number of the deployments to East Timor, Solomons and Iraq which had previously had seperate sections for all of them, however the words are not mine, so I can't vouch for their provenance yet. I will get on to the rest as soon as I can. Cheers. AustralianRupert (talk) 12:46, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
I have completed rewriting the Fiji and Somalia sections now. It is just the Recent Deployments section that needs work now, but I don't really have any sources for these. AustralianRupert (talk) 21:43, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Inclusion of non deployments[edit]

The article currently includes entries on possible deployments to Fiji and Bougainville in the mid-late 1980s. As these did not eventuate and were relatively minor, should they really be included in the article? As most soldiers would know deployments are frequently mentioned, planned and even partially commenced only to be called off at the last moment. If we were to include all of them in this article it would be so big that it would be pretty useless as a basic overview. That is just my opinion, what does anyone else think? AustralianRupert (talk) 12:57, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

I think that perhaps the Fiji deployment should possibly stay given that a rather large operation was mounted, but just didnt land in Fiji, but the Bougainville entry probably doesn't belong in my opinion. Otherwise we'd probably have to include every time RHQ mentions a possible deployment to Hawaii...AustralianRupert (talk)
