The state associations of the 4th Battalion, Royal
Australian Regiment (4 RAR) by circumstance, do not
have a National Executive. State 4 RAR Associations
operate as separate but affiliated associations for the
MALAYSIA / SARAWAK - SOUTH VIETNAM - TIMOR - TIMOR LESTE - IRAQ - AFGHANISTAN
The Fighting Fourth
4 RAR has had many roles and titles since it was raised
at Woodside in 1964 as an Infantry battalion of the Royal
Australian Regiment. Each role has been defined in the
title and is reflective of the task or the composite makeup
of the Battalion in every campaign that it has been asked
to serve Australia since 1964.
From its inception in 1964, continuing during its tour of
Malaysia and Borneo until 1967, and subsequently within
Australia until 1968, the Battalion was designated 4 RAR
with the role of a Light (air portable) battalion.
Because of the welcome attachment of Victor and
Whiskey Companies of the Royal New Zealand Regiment
during its first tour of South Vietnam in 1968 and 1969
and the again welcome attachment of Victor Company of
the Royal New Zealand Regiment during its second tour
of South Vietnam in 1971 and 1972, the Battalion was
designated 4 RAR/NZ ANZAC.
