The Australian navy has launched an investigation into revelations defence personnel are members of an online racist group.


The group, Australian Defence League, which is affiliated with the hardline English Defence League, calls for members to fight the 'Muslim infiltration of the country'.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, some 20 personnel are members of the ADL; and the hardline English Defence League is known for its links to football hooliganism and violent street marches.

On its Facebook page, the ADL has called for members to go to Lakemba Park for Australia Day.

The page's administrator cautioned members that the comments were public, which could become a component of an investigation.

After Fairfax Media provided the Australian Defence Force with screen shots of more than 20 ADL members, who listed their employment as the navy, the army and Defence, a spokeswoman said it would take swift action, the report added.
