Bouganville[edit]

I couldnt find any mention of peacekeeping in Bouganville, did i miss it? if it definatley isnt there could someone who knows about it write about it? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 202.4.74.65 (talk) 19:15, 27 February 2007 (UTC). I walked with my 8 year old son in Newcastle's Civic park this afternoon and looked at a war memorial commemorating the sacrifies made by our servicemen in the Malay, Malay pennisula, Borneo and Korea conflicts. All of which I know very little. I looked here as my first reference point and I find very little other than headings?? Surely there must be Historians with an interest for this period.

Fair use rationale for Image:AMTG.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:AMTG.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Suggested Sectioning[edit]

I think the first section should be broken up into pre-federation 'colonial forces section' and a section up to WWII. Also the post WWII section could be broken up into a SEA section (Malaya Emergency, Vietnam War) and a Modern period eg. Gulf War 1, East Timor onwards. I haven't thought through the exact names but I think this would provide additional structure to the article. Comments and suggestion welcomed. --TinTin (talk) 23:37, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

Jeff Grey in the Centenary history of the Australian Army has eight chapters: Federation to 1914, 1914-1918, 1919-1939, 1939-1941, 1942-1945, 1945-1959, 1960-1975 and 1976-2000. We can add since 2001. The focus should not be on operations but on the structure of the Australian Army in peacetime and on support for operations in wartime.
