In recognition of your outstanding contribution to Australian Army Band Brisbane and the AABC.

You have been commended for your dedication and commitment as a musician and particularly in your contribution to enhancing the performance capability of the band as the trumpet section leader, leader of the brass quintet and your significant contribution to the brass group. Your willingness to devote your own time and resources to extend your personal skills and to motivate others in this vital area demonstrates the enthusiasm you have to ensure that your band performs at the highest professional level.

Your outstanding contribution as the bugler for the ANZAC Day ceremony at Villers-Bretonneux is typical of the professional attitude you consistently display towards the performance of your duties whilst representing the Corps, and the Australian Army, with dignity.

Your contribution to morale and esprit de corps with the Australian Army Band Brisbane is much valued as is your responsible attitude towards your duties as a Corporal. This extraordinary level of commitment and work ethic is highly valued and serves as an inspiration to those around you. Your efforts reflect great credit on yourself and the Australian Army Band Corps.
