the kind support, guidance and encouragement of the SAS Resources
Trust a group of former Clearance Divers united to setup up the
Navy Clearance Diver Trust, modelled on the SASRT, for the benefit
of Clearance Divers and their families.
Clearance Divers encounter many of the same challenges and dangers
as SAS personnel in the course of training and operations. This
risk occurs on a constant basis during both training and active
duty within Australia and overseas. Their efforts are for the
benefit and security of all Australians.
The NCDT is indebted to the support given to the Trust
by law firm Allens
Arthur Robinson, accountants Breally
Quill Kenny, auditiors Price
Waterhouse Coopers, website
and Kate Geraghty of Fairfax
Media for many of the
photos used on the site. The Trust also appreciates the help provided
by Mr Clayton Scott in designing the NCDT logo.
Most importantly though, the NCDT is greatly indebted to the SAS
Resources Trust, for their support, guidance,
and encouragement, without which the NCDT would have had a much
more difficult path to creation. The continuing support of the
Resources Trust and the Commando
Welfare Trust represent the best
traditions of the ADF and the very close working relationship
Clearance Divers, SAS Soldiers and Commandos have had for more
than 30 years.
The Trust does not have an expiry date.
It is there for as long as there are Clearance Divers. The NCDT
is there to provide support RAN Clearance Divers and their families
whether they are on operational service or in training.
