  To the Honourable Senator Robert Ray, Minister for Defence and members of the Senate of the Commonwealth of Australia

  The majority of residents of and visitors to the cities of Darwin and Palmerston and the surrounding rural areas fully and faithfully request and support the continued permanent use of the RAAF Base Darwin for military training and exercises by Australian and friendly air forces, such as the United States of America and Singapore.

  Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the Minister for Defence and Members of the Senate of the Commonwealth of Australia would give total support for the continued occupation of the RAAF Base Darwin by these air and ground forces and their exercises operating out of Darwin.

  And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
