About This Unit

General / Motor Transport Elements

Key Source:  Reference: McKenzie-Smith, Graham 2018 " The Unit Guide The Australian Army 1939-45  This is a titanic accomplishment in 6 volumes which is must for any student of the Australian Army in WW2.  The VWMA would not have been able to achieve the clarity we have striven for without reference to this series of books.

General Transport Companies derived from Field Supply Units, and they worked to transport supply items, including ammunition, between depots.

The history of these units is convoluted and difficult to trace, as the same companies often existed under multiple names.

Their chain of command and reporting relationships also changed. Many also had detachments that worked independently to the main unit. The names of each General Transport Company and their many iterations are listed below, as best we have been able to establish:
