Tongan-led Exercise TAFAKULA 2019 has come to a close, after Australia participated in the operation for the first time.

Tongan-led Exercise TAFAKULA 2019 has come to a close, after Australia participated in the operation for the first time.

The biennial exercise is designed to train units of His Majesty’s Armed Forces of Tonga and, historically, to enhance engagement and interoperability between the New Zealand Defence Force, French Army New Caledonia, Nevada National Guard and US Marine Corps.

2019 marked the first time the Australia Army would take part in the Exercise, with an Aussie contingent consisting of 15 personnel from 2nd/14th Light Horse Regiment (Queensland Mounted Infantry) and the 1st/15th Royal New South Wales Lancers.

For a look at some of the action from the exercise, scroll through the image gallery above.
