A ‘new dawn’ for the SAS as leadership overhauled
There will be an overhaul of SAS leadership to help prepare soldiers for future conflicts.
The leadership of the regiment is being elevated to a colonel to ensure appropriate oversight for future complex missions.
Assistant Defence Minister Andrew Hastie told Ray Hadley this is a “vote in confidence” in the SAS.
“It will mean that we will have a more senior, more experienced officer in charge of the whole enterprise.
“We’re celebrating a sort of new dawn for the SAS. I sense a rise in morale.”
