The Australian War Memorial states, ‘The war ended inconclusively in mid-2002. However, approximately 500 Australian soldiers remained on deployment in Afghanistan, continuing operations with American and other coalition forces to hunt Taliban terrorist groups and carry out reconstruction and engineering projects.
The continuing deployment of Australian forces on operations in Oruzgan province has produced increasing numbers of Australian casualties: 11 Australians died on operations in Afghanistan from 2002 to the end of 2009, 10 died in 2010, and 11 in 2011.
Toowoomba Grammar School Records do not have any information on those that have served or are currently serving. Sadly one Old Boy paid the Supreme Sacrifice. ‘Lest We Forget’.
