That this Synod commends for prayerful study the report of the Armed Services Board, giving thanks for the devoted service rendered by the Chaplains through the Word and Sacraments to all personnel under their pastoral care.

Aware of the continuing expansion of the Defence Forces of Australia and the unusual opportunities for the Church through its Chaplains in a changing situation, Synod agrees that the Board shall meet annually and approves such expense.
