Ten Submarine Force members have been deployed to support the Task Force throughout Western Australia.
“Being one of the first groups of Navy personnel in Western Australia to be assigned to this role has been exciting and challenging.
“All the people here are keen to contribute to the national effort to flatten the curve of the spread of coronavirus,” Warrant Officer Tony O’Rielly said.
Leading Seaman Christian Thom was one of the personnel assisting in Western Australia.
“It wasn’t how I was expecting to spend my day a few weeks ago, but I am happy to do my part as a service person to help”.
“It certainly shows that life in the services is never dull that’s for sure,” Leading Seaman Thom said.
The submarine force is continuing to operate as directed by Government while also contributing to Operation COVID-19 ASSIST.
