ABC exclusive access to the photo. The picture was enlarged but not repaired. ABC obtained other photos of the flag and found that similar photos were circulated in the Australian Army in Afghanistan.
An Australian Defense official said that this was a "perverted joke" rather than a genuine Nazi evidence. According to sources, the banner has been hanging up for quite a long time.
Griggs, deputy commander of the Australian defense force, said that appropriate measures had been taken immediately. He said: "I think it is important that the situation be dealt with immediately, and the flag has been removed. We learned afterwards that after the patrol returned to the base, the flag was destroyed. The soldiers were immediately warned and received counselling.
Australian Prime Minister Turnbull condemned the conduct of high Nazi soldiers, which he said was totally unacceptable. He said, "this is wrong and wrong. The commanding officer had taken action at that time."
