    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.
