Australian Special Air Service SASR


Operating under the motto Who Dares Wins the Special Air Services Regiment (SASR) is a direct command unit of the Australian Special Operations Command with a demanding role. Members are specially selected and highly trained to act with discretion and discipline in situations that may have national and strategic consequences. Personnel are required to work in small teams for extended periods without support. The SASR can trace its beginnings back to the Australian Z Special Unit and Independent Commando Companies that fought during World War II. On 25 July 1957, the 1st Special Air Service Company, Royal Australian Infantry was raised in Campbell Barracks in Western Australia. In 1964 the Company was expanded to a Regiment to become the Special Air Service Regiment.
