    This service is to commemorate the date in 1964 when the SAS Company was expanded to a regiment.

    The SASR is a Special Forces unit of the Australian Army that provides special operations capabilities in support of the Australian Defence Force. Their roles include: recovery, training assistance to local or Indigenous forces, reconnaissance, precision strikes, counter-terrorist capability, recovery of Australian citizens and humanitarian assistance. They are primarily structured to conduct reconnaissance and surveillance in small teams in enemy controlled territory, while commando units are utilised to conduct raids in larger groups.
