The military's partiality for steady, orderly progress may be a cliche, but it is especially evident in the Australian Defence Force's latest leadership reshuffle announced on Friday. Mark Binskin, Vice-Chief of the ADF, will assume the top post in July, succeeding General David Hurley who has occupied the post since July 2011. The vacated deputy's role will go to Chief of Navy Vice-Admiral Ray Griggs, who will in turn be succeeded by Rear Admiral Tim Barrett. Air Marshal Geoff Brown stays put in his job as Chief of the Air Force.
