Description
Information
A sniper is not just a good shot. While marksmanship is crucial, it is not this alone that defines the sniper. Snipers must also be superb bushmen, possess limitless patience, iron discipline, rat cunning, extraordinary stamina, and attract more than their share of luck. The well-trained sniper will stalk his enemy or lie in wait for his target to appear. He will eliminate his target with just one shot and escape to repeat his mission again and again.

The history of the Australian Army is replete with untold tales of brave men who built reputations as daring and skilful snipers. From the training grounds of the Boer War and WWI, Australian snipers honed their deadly skills and earned a fearsome reputation. In WWII they duelled with their German counterparts in the Western Desert and the hardy Japanese snipers of the Pacific War. The valuable lessons of two major wars had to be relearned for the Korean War where "naive young men who knew nothing of combat sniping " learned quickly or didn't survive.

The snipers of today's Australian Army have learned the lessons of history and are held in the same high regard by friend or foe as their Gallipoli forebears.
