ObjectiveOp Ryan, named for Private John Ryan, who won the Victoria Cross for conspicuous bravery and devotion to duty during the allied assault on the Hindenburg defences on 30 September 1918. Op Ryan began on the 25th of Jan 2020, in Cobargo - in southern NSW, one of the worst hit regions in Australia during this fire season. Over 2000 homes have been burnt and over 29 thousand hectares of farm and forest land burnt and damaged. TRA plans to be on the ground there for at least 3 months - possibly longer. This week, TRA were able to recover a Bravery Medal and other important items for a resident of Yowrie, who’s home was razed by the fires.
