FAMILIES and friends have farewelled 450 Australian soldiers at a ceremony in Adelaide on Saturday.

The members of the 7th Battalion (Mechanised) Royal Australian Regiment Task Group will be deployed to Afghanistan in late October and early November.

The task force will act as advisors to the Afghan National Army in the Uruzgan province as the country moves to take responsibility for their own security and development.
