Brief History

The Unit was formed at Milne Bay in PNG on 3 Jun 1943, with detachments at Port Moresby, Lae, Goodenough Island, Hollandia (Dutch New Guinea) and Tadji. It was disbanded on 26 Apr 1946.

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. They were set up in northern areas of Australia, New Guinea and surrounding islands. They also helped to supply American units when required.
