Chief of the Defense Force, Angus Campbell, makes the point that he would be accepting the report’s recommendation as well as write to the Governor to revoke the Meritorious Unit Citation. “The report acknowledges, therefore, that there is also a collective responsibility for what is alleged to have happened” he states.
