2nd/10th Commando Squadron 2/6th Cavalry (Commando) Regiment

About This Unit


When  the Australian Army was reorganised in 1943–44 to prepare for jungle warfare, the independent commando squadrons were re-organised into a regimental system underneath the headquarters of the divisional cavalry units of the 6th, 7th and 9th Divisions.

As a part of the reorganisation, the 2/10th Commando Squadron was raised in January 1944, as part of the 2/6th Cavalry Commando Regiment, attached to the 6th Division. The colour patch displayed here is that of 2/6th Cavalry Commando Regiment.
