Tragedy has struck our SOCOMD community as we mourn the loss of four brave soldiers from the 6th Aviation Regiment. 

On that fateful Friday, 28th July 2023, during a training exercise for Exercise Talisman Sabre, the MRH90 helicopter carrying Captain Daniel Lyon, Lieutenant Maxwell Nugent, Warrant Officer Class Two Joseph Laycock, and Corporal Alexander Naggs crashed into the waters near Hamilton Island.
