Land Rover 6x6 Parakeet

Flying Officer Alex Barbaro marches through the pouring rain alongside a Land Rover 6x6 'Parakeet' as it ambles to a new Tactical Air Command Post (TACP) site. After spending three weeks training at RAAF Richmond's No. 1 Combat Communication Squadron (1CCS), students of Tactical Communications (TACTCOMMS) course 0039 deployed to the Singleton Training Area in New South Wales to consolidate their knowledge in a tactical field environment. Having travelled from RAAF bases all over Australia to participate in the course, the students were kitted out with their packs, webbing and F88 Steyrs before disappearing into the bush to set up and operate a TACP and smaller satellite radio communication posts known as 'Step Ups'.
