Tony Easterby served as an infantry soldier with the 4th Battalion, The Royal Australian Regiment from 1964-1969. After a two year break from army service the author decided to re-enlist, in the services once again, and this time as a police officer with the RAAF in 1971. His move from the somewhat casual 'baggy greens' of the Army to the 'blue suit' of the air force inspired this book. The first part concerning the author's army service was initially published in 2002 as a novel called ‘GREEN MULES GREEN GIANTS' The new title of this book made little sense without the inclusion of the author's time in greens, so it has been updated and included. This book then, is one man's journey through two military services, army and air force, leaving out most of the harshness associated with military life to concentrate on some of the funnier and interesting times associated with his service life. An interesting life along with a certain fortunate life having survived a parachute malfunction, two mine fields, falling down an open well, wounded in Viet Nam, attacked by a knife wielding airman along with staring down the barrels of a shotgun and a fully loaded .22 Rifle. Both weapons used by the same crazy airman.

WA Police MIG/79 Division 30th Anniversary Commemorative Medal: The final medal struck by Western Australia Police's rapid-response Major Incident Group to celebrate 30 years as an elite section of WAPOL; 1979-2009. Shortly after the internal issue, the unit was disbanded.
79 Division was founded in 1979 to provide a 24 hour rapid response to major criminal offences committed in the Perth Metropolitan area. The Division was made up of general duty officers and detectives, a unique combination. A hard-line reputation amongst hardened criminals was fostered and the group truly became a force in the Service. In 1999, 79 Division became known as the Major Incident Group. The crime section continued its hard-line policing in Western Australia.
This commemorative medal was struck to recognise the service given by 79 Division/Major Incident Group members over the past 30 years. This is a strictly limited release and includes loose medal, 250mm of riband and 1979-2009 clasp.
