Aussie mates

New Zealand and Australian soldiers have marked the repatriation of SAS commando Doug Grant, who was killed in Afghanistan on Friday.

Defence Force staff from both countries provided a ceremony at the ramp of an Australian Hercules as his coffin was carried on to the plane to be flown back to New Zealand.

A statement from the New Zealand Defence Force thanked their Australian counterparts for helping with “the repatriation of our fallen comrade”.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
