No. 7 Transport & Movements Office RAAF

From Our Contribution


Brief History

RAAF Transportation and Movement Offices were established to move large volumes and numbers of RAAF 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 assisted American units when called on to do so. Most of the units were disbanded in early 1946.

No. 7 Transport & Movement Office was formed on 3 Jun 1944 in Milne Bay with detachments at Port Moresby, Goodenough Island, Hollandia, Lae, Holandia and Tadji. On 26 Apr 1946 this unit was disbanded.
