Two of our bravest have fallen - TWO Australian soldiers have been killed in southern Afghanistan as Taliban insurgents launched a fresh wave of attacks. The Diggers belonged to the Mentoring Task Force and are the first Australians to die in 11 months, bringing the total number of campaign deaths to 13.

...Lieutenant-General Hurley said exact details, including their names, will be released after an investigation by the weapons intelligence team. "I speak for the entire ADF (Australian Defence Force) and defence community when I tell you I am deeply saddened by the loss of these two brave Australian soldiers," Lt Gen Hurley said.

Defence force chief Angus Houston said it was too early for words to provide comfort to the families of the men, but he wanted them to know both were outstanding Australians.

"Quietly serving our nation and demonstrating every day the very best of what Aussies pride themselves on displaying to the world - courage, determination, mateship and selfless service."

Thank you brave sons of Australia and rest in peace.
