Western Command Base Postal Unit

From Our Contribution


Brief History

5th Military District Base Postal Unit was raised in January 1942 in Perth and soon after was renamed Western Command Base Postal Unit. However, there was overlap with another Postal unit and so when there was a split at higher headquarters, this unit was absorbed into the Western Australian Line of Communication Postal Unit during April 1942.
