Mr WIGHT (LILLEY, QUEENSLAND) - My question, which is directed to the Minister for the Army, refers to the courageous rescue attempts by Duntroon cadets of their comrades in the Lake George tragedy last year. The Minister will recall that, of the five cadets involved, two have quite rightly been honored with the George Medal as a decoration for the courage they displayed. I ask the Minister whether any recognition has been given or any tribute paid to the three cadets who actually initiated the rescue attempt which cost them their lives.
