Unit History: In 1996, a decision was made to convert 4RAR to a Special Forces unit. On 1 February 1997 was renamed to 4 RAR (Cdo). Regular serving members were given the opportunity to undertake special forces training provided mainly by 1st Commando Regiment or elect a posting to a conventional forces unit. The initial years were busy creating a structure and recruiting members suitable for commando training. Bravo Company was raised first followed by Charlie Company in 1999, both taking 24 months to reach full maturity. The pace of battalion life during these development years was hectic with capability development, equipment acquisition and training focusing every member's attention. On 19 June 2009 the battalion was renamed the 2nd Commando Regiment.
