Australian special forces soldiers photographed and filmed themselves posing with a Confederate flag while on operations in Afghanistan, ABC Investigations can reveal.
A photo and a video show two SAS soldiers smiling and holding up the flag, which has the words “Southern Pride” emblazoned on it.
An Australian Defence Force spokesperson said the ADF was not previously aware of the pictures and video, and so was not in a position to identify who was responsible.
