This unit workshop was raised in Victoria in October 1967 to service the Centurion tanks of C Squadron, 1st Armoured Regiment, RAAC, sent to Vietnam in 1968. This was the first overseas deployment of Centurions. Based at Nui Dat, unit members undertook repair and recovery support for all the tanks on operational deployments until the unit was disbanded in a restructure of RAEME units in Vietnam in October 1968.
