"Religious participation

Air Force members identify with 53 recognised religions and members are served by the Air Force Chaplaincy Branch comprising chaplains from eight denominations.

The Air Force uniform is one of the traditions of RAAF service, creating a sense of belonging and pride for Air Force members. Air Force uniform options include turbans for members of the Sikh faith; and Hijabs for members of the Muslim faith. http://tinyurl.com/k5uty56 "
It seems that one can be accepted into the RAAF if Muslim ... but not if a New Zealander.

Incredible. Whatever happened to the tradition of "Anzac"?

"Official Policy" is so often a euphemism for Ham-fistedness.

I said "I was wondering the same thing.
I hope there's some bureaucratic arse-kicking done over this & the "anomaly" in the instructions is rectified.
You'd think someone who's sworn loyalty to Australia as a cadet would be good enough as an adult."

I would have thought that New Zealand would be a first Port of Call for recruiting ADF personnel from offshore. Despite some playful rivalry at times, we are after all kindred cultures with similar values and priorities.

I would expect that New Zealanders among ADF personnel would be more naturally loyal than some other elements who gain acceptance.

Surely the policy cited cannot reflect a widespread sentiment. It is so bizarre that it seems more like a personal input by someone with more influence than sense.

Thanks for that. This is a real issue.

It has been referred to as an "anomaly". Mincing words, much?

It's an indefensible first-rate c0ckup!
