"We are looking for serving or ex-serving foreign military personnel, who can directly transfer their job and life skills to whichever Service they join, with limited training and preparation," the Australian Defence Force has announced on its website.

Jobs to be filled include special forces types, intelligence officers and submariners, according to the announcement, but the separate recruitment pages for each service branch show that the Aussies will consider veterans with a broad range of military experience.

I retire in a year and 3 months and wouldn't mind flying their Hawk T2's as I fly T-45A/C Goshawks now.

To the best of my knowledge you dont just transfer. You leave your military and then move down here and join the ADF. They have been doing it for years with the Brit Army guys.

I seriously considered the French Foreign Legion after I was RIF'd out of the Army post Vietnam in Germany. However, I was a single parent with two small children after my stupid ex left the children and I for a GI doper in Germany.

I would have made the move probably to my own bad end. In any case, I didn't and my life moved on somewhat. If Australia was available then, I'd have made the move.
