Replacement ADF troops bound for Solomons
The troops were farewelled this morning by the commander of the Australian Army's 1st Division, Major General Ash Power.
The soldiers are from the 103rd Medium Battery of the 8th/12th Regiment, which is based at Darwin's Robertson Barracks.
They will be replacing troops from the 101st Battery of the same regiment who have been in the Solomon Islands since June.
The soldiers form part of the Regional Assistance Mission to the Solomon Islands (RAMSI).
The mission is also made up of troops from New Zealand, Fiji, Papua New Guinea and Tonga and its goal is to help the Solomon Islands Government restore law and order.
