No. 2 Transport & Movement Office RAAF

From Our Contribution


Brief History

RAAF Transportation and Movement Offices were established to move large volumes and numbers of RAAF goods, equipment and personnel by ship, rail and road during the war. Mainly established in northern areas of Australia, New Guinea and surrounding islands. When required they also serviced American units. Most of the units disbanded early in 1946, except for those in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne which remain open into late 1948 and early 1949.

No. 2 Transportation and Movements Office was formed at Melbourne on 9 Oct 1942, remaining active until it was disbanded on 2 Feb 1949.
