Mr Gusmao was in Perth to be guest speaker at a Special Event Charity Dinner for the SAS Resources Fund. Mr Gusmao and his entourage showed great interest in the exhibits relating to the Special Air Service Regiment’s operational history, particularly the display comprising images and objects from the UN sanctioned intervention in East Timor by the multinational International Force in East Timor (INTERFET). The SAS Historical Foundation provided an array of images of the conflict in East Timor at the Charity Dinner venue.
