Returning Australian Troops Parade Through Brisbane Streets
None of the returning soldiers received a welcome. All the infantry battalions received a ‘welcome home’ parade. Here returning troops parade through Brisbane streets in March 1971. However, National Servicemen who returned by air in small groups were often discharged from the Army almost immediately. Unlike the regular soldiers who retained the support of their units, discharged National Servicemen went straight out into the civilian world on their own.
