"Accurately employ a range of advanced weapon systems (including night aiming devices);" All Regular and Reserve Infantry soldiers are trained in the use of NAD's (Night Aiming devices).. not just 4RAR. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

Most of the information about 4 is incorrect and very outdated. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:38, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

I added a little more info about training and selection in the first paragraph. You can find the info at Ebglider91 (talk) 10:19, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

Is 4RAR same as 2 Commando?[edit]

“4 RAR will remain on Army’s Order of Battle with its history, colours and traditions preserved for future service as and when required by our nation. So too will we continue to celebrate the battalion’s service and the sacrifice of those who served under its colours.” Chief of Army Lieutenant General Ken Gillespie -- (talk) 06:53, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

No - 4 RAR has been deactivated, and could potentially be reraised as an infantry battalion alongside 2 Cdo Nick-D (talk) 07:59, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on 4th Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment. Please take a moment to review my edit. You may add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it, if I keep adding bad data, but formatting bugs should be reported instead. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether, but should be used as a last resort. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true or failed to let others know (documentation at {{Sourcecheck}}).

Assessment comment[edit]

The comment(s) below were originally left at Talk:4th Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment/Comments, and are posted here for posterity. Following several discussions in past years, these subpages are now deprecated. The comments may be irrelevant or outdated; if so, please feel free to remove this section.

The image of the badge is incorrect. While the 'Skippy' badge is the hat badge of the Royal Australian Regiment (i.e. 1RAR, 2RAR, 3RAR and 5/7RAR), 4RAR (Cdo) has it's own distinct hat badge - that of a dagger through a boomerang.
