Edition 4 Junior Officer PME – Fifty Shades of Grey: Officer Culture in the Australian Army
In one of the few modern pieces written about the Australian Army's officer corps; James Brown is quite critical of officer culture in his 2013 article 'Fifty Shades of Grey: Officer Culture in the Australian Army'. In the fourth edition of our series of PME activities for junior officers, we encourage some self-reflection of officer culture.

The Cove proudly brings you the history of Australia’s Gallipoli Campaign, told through a high-quality 14-minute animated video.
