The Commando - the Life and Death of Cameron Baird VC, MG
On 22 June 2013, Tasmanian Corporal Cameron Baird was a 2nd Commando Regiment Special Forces soldier when he led his platoon into a known Taliban stronghold to back-up another Australian unit under heavy fire. In the prolonged firefight, Baird was mortally wounded.

In 2014, Cameron Baird's bravery and courage under fire saw him posthumously awarded the 100th Victoria Cross, Australia's highest award possible for bravery in the presence of the enemy.
