DEFENCE chief Mark Binskin has issued a fresh warning to his troops in the wake of an attack against a navy officer at his Sydney home.

The 41-year-old was in full uniform when he was allegedly approached by two men of Middle Eastern appearance in Bella Vista, in Sydney's north-west, on Thursday morning.

The officer told Kings Cross police that he was threatened and assaulted about 6.30am, leaving him with minor bruising.

Air Chief Marshal Binskin told News Corp Australia that he had not altered his view that he would not tell Defence members to not wear their uniform.

However he urged them to be diligent and to look out for each other as the risk grew of reprisal attacks by Islamic militants and their supporters angered by Australian involvement in Iraq.

"I have not issued any change to my previous direction," he said.

"It remains — think about where you're going, be aware of your surroundings, and exercise common sense and judgment when considering where and when to wear your uniform in public."

Air Chief Marshal Binskin used his Facebook page to urged his people to be aware of their surroundings and to avoid being distracted by their mobile phone while they were in public.

"Tell someone where you're going and when you expect to return," he wrote.

"Try to park in high traffic, well lit areas with good visibility and lock your car when it's unattended, even if it's in the garage."

He also advised them to consider downloading an app on their smartphone that links a person and their location to emergency services.

"Simple steps like these can help you and your family feel more at ease — but most importantly, make sure you look out for each other."
