DITC Celebrates Three Navy Milestones, 1 March, 2016
The CO delivered an illuminating history lesson to staff and students on the 1st of March, a day to remember and celebrate several milestones in our military's history, not the least of which was the Royal Australian Navy's 115th year! A close second was the establishment of RAAF Base Williams in 1925, Australia's third oldest RAAF base. Finally, came the creation of the RAN's new ensign in 1967... which was done in order to distinguish our own navy from the British during the conflict in Vietnam. Three major developments that we can all be proud of.
