    Background: A party of 56 officers of the Khmer Republic armed forces arrived at Richmond Airforce Base near Sydney in Australia last Sunday (28 January) to begin a series of courses in basic officer training, jungle warfare, and flying. The courses will take nearly a year. The officers were met by representatives of the Australian Department of Education and Sciences who will supervise their first studies, including a "crash" course in English. The courses will cost the Australian Government an estimated 200,000 dollars (100,000 sterling).
