I have assessed this article as a Start class article. I feel that the article could be improved by the following:

  • adding more in line citations to reliable third party sources;
  • expanding the text to discuss the historical legacy of the unit in more detail;
  • rewriting the text as it currently sounds like a job advertisement in a number of places;
  • adding some images if possible.

Just a few ideas. — AustralianRupert (talk) 04:58, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

Unit Citation for Gallantry[edit]

The information is incorrect regarding 2 CDO being awarded the UCG. It was actually awarded to the 4 RAR (CDO). — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:28, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

AFAIK 2 CDO assumed 4 RAR (CDO)'s heritage following its renaming, while 4 RAR remains on the ORBAT as a line infantry unit should it be reestablished at a later date. As such 2 CDO inherited the UCG from 4 RAR (CDO). Is this not correct? Anotherclown (talk) 11:45, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
Yes, I'm pretty sure that I've read that the honours 4 RAR earned during its period as a commando battalion moved across to the 2nd Commando Regiment (with the pre-commando era honours remaining with 4 RAR). I can't find the reference now, but it was probably in the Army newspaper. Nick-D (talk) 11:49, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
That sounds familiar (and typically complicated)! Anotherclown (talk) 11:56, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
