Out of all the stories I personally prefer the gold miner/Eureka Stockade story. This is the answer from Digger History. Where did the term "Digger" come from? There are 4 theories about where the term "Digger" came from. Any one may be correct. Any one may be wrong. 1. The blokes who enlisted from Western Australia (and some other places) were gold miners or tin miners. They were diggers and the name traveled with them to Gallipoli. (The people who support this theory point to the Eureka Stockade and the fact that the name "diggers" was used there). 2. On Gallipoli if you wanted to live you dug a hole. Many holes joined with other holes to become trenches. Trenches needed to be constantly re-dug. So the blokes who survived were the diggers. 3. In his book "The Maori Battalion in the First World War" the respected NZ historian Chris Pugsley claims (page 55 August 1916) "the New Zealand Pioneers work in building the communications trenches would earn them the sobriquet "the diggers". The British units they served coined the term on account of the Pioneers exploits as the "Digging Battalion". "Digger" was adopted by the rest of the New Zealand Division in 1916. By 1917 the name has spread from the New Zealand Division to the Australian Division in the the ANZAC Corps. 4. The famed Australian historian C E W Bean claimed that the word started with the professional gum-diggers from New Zealand but he does not set a date for it s first usage, although he indicates that it gained common acceptance during 3rd Ypres (Passchendaele). http://www.diggerhistory.info/pages-help/faq.htm This is the answer from the Department of Defence website. The nickname Digger is attributed to the number of ex-gold diggers in the early army units and to the trench digging activities of the Australian soldiers during World War I. The Australian soldier is known affectionately around the world as the Digger. http://www.defence.gov.au/army/traditions/documents/Digger.htm

The Australian Army Cadets (AAC) is a youth organisation that is involved in training and adventurous activities in a military setting. The programme has more than 19,000 Army Cadets between the ages of 12½ and 19 based in 237 units around Australia. The motto is "Courage, Initiative, Teamwork" and a recently added motto "respect".

The cadet programme has strong links to the Australian Army and is a part of the Australian Defence Force Cadets. However, its members are not members of the Australian Defence Force by virtue only of their membership of the Australian Army Cadets. While cadets are encouraged to consider enlisting in the military, it is not required that they do so.

Activities of the Army Cadets include navigation and orienteering, fun games, team-building games, field camps, ceremonial drill, radio communication skills, basic bush skills, first aid, equipment maintenance, participation in cadet bands, shooting the Australian Defence Force Service Rifle, the F88 Austeyr and the Australian Army Service Light Machine Gun, the F89 Minimi with one-on-one Army supervision.

Good on you mate! The first thing you will want to do is have a browse of the army website: http://www.defencejobs.gov.au/army/ That will give you a lot of information on what sorts of positions are available, and a good outline of what they entail. If you want more info, call 13 19 01. The people at the call centre ate very friendly, helpful and will do all they can for you. The mo0st likely thing that will happen is they will sign you up for an open day, where you can go to your local defence base and have a chat with some recruitment officers there about what you want and what can be done for you. On to part two, what s it like. Well, in short, it s pretty awesome. I joined 2 years ago at 19. Before I was a bit of a whiner smart-****, but the army grows you up real fast. Not just the discipline (which helps, don t get me wrong) but the reponsibility you are expected to live up to. You learn some awesome stuff, make lifelong friends (and all crazed CoD player stuff aside, machine guns are AWESOME) and get paid to do it. If you decide to leave at the end of your time you have real world experience, qualifications, and a bloody good reference to put on your resume. [EDIT] I was in the same boat as you, quite fit but no current sports. That s fine. They will probably whinge at you a bit for not being in a club, but the instant you do a fitness test and blitz it, they shut up real quick.
