- The pamphlet gives the order of proceedings for a service held on 17 February 2010, at the Shrine of Remembrance, Melbourne, to mark the 50th anniversary of the 'Rip incident' involving 75 Commandos with three deaths and a number of injuries.
- The service was a mark of respect to the lost men and their families; it was a tragic, but significant, event in the history of the relatively new Commando unit, remembered by former serving members.
