The petition of the undersigned respectfully shows that the Regular Army Band based in Adelaide is

  1.  an integral part of South Australian community life

  2.  a valuable contributor to nearly 250 charitable, civic and military functions per year

  3.  important to the morale and identity of Defence Force personnel

  4.  not adequately replaceable by a Reserve Force band

Your petitioners therefore pray that the Senate in Parliament assembled will

  1.  condemn the Keating Labor Government's decision to abolish the band

  2.  call on the Minister for Defence to retain the Regular Army Band in Adelaide

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