Fly the flag

There is no harm in displaying your country’s flag every day but the Memorial Day is an event when it turns to be a great idea. But before performing this act, you must understand the etiquettes of flying the flag.

You must keep in mind that the respect and honor for the country’s flag are also as important and valuable as the respect of your soldiers. Prepare a plan of flying the flag and honor the sacrifice of your soldiers.

Painting the flag on your face

Say Thank You

Saying thank you is an invaluable gift that you can give someone in your life. If you say thank you to your soldiers for their sacrifice and good with a smile on your face, it will increase the feeling of serving the country in their hearts.

It’s not only for the Memorial Day but you can also say thank you to the soldiers wherever you find them because they are doing all the sacrifices for your protection so they deserve the respect. But if you never get to meet any soldiers during the whole year you can say them thank you on the Memorial Day to encourage them.

Supporting the families of Soldiers

Supporting the families of Soldiers will not only bring you peace of mind but it will also bring you the smile on your face. If you’re not capable of helping them financially, you can still help them by investing your time.



If you spend some time with the families of the soldier, it will encourage them to support their guardians in safeguarding the country and the residents of that country.

Soldiers sacrifice a lot for us and we can never pay them back but such minor acts will help them stay encouraged.

3rd/4th Cavalry Regiment

3rd/4th Cavalry Regiment is an armoured regiment of the Australian Army, and is third in seniority in the Royal Australian Armoured Corps. The regiment was formed in 1981 through the amalgamation of the 3rd Cavalry Regiment and the 4th Cavalry Regiment.
3rd Cavalry

The 3rd Cavalry Regiment was formed in 1966 as 1st Armoured Personnel Carrier Squadron by the redesignation of a troop from the 4th/19th Prince of Wales’s Light Horse, before being designated the 3rd Cavalry the same year. This unit saw extensive service throughout Australia’s presence in Vietnam as part of the 1st Australian Task Force. At the time, the regiment consisted of a single squadron. However, part of A Squadron was redesignated first as 1 APC Squadron, then as B Squadron in 1967-68. The two squadrons swapped titles at various times until 1971, when A Squadron was transferred to the 2nd Cavalry Regiment.

4th Cavalry

The 4th Cavalry Regiment was formed in 1971 by the redesignation of B Squadron, 2nd Cavalry as A Squadron. This was joined in 1975 by a newly raised Regimental Headquarters and B Squadron. The service of the regiment was short lived, as in 1981 it was decided to amalgamate it with the 3rd Cavalry Regiment to form the 3rd/4th Cavalry Regiment.

Current Role

The 3rd/4th Cavalry Regiment currently consists of a single squadron, B Squadron, which is based at Lavarack Barracks, Townsville. It serves as an armoured personnel carrier squadron and is equipped with the M113 APC. The Squadron will be re-equipped with Bushmaster infantry mobility vehicles in the near future.

1st Armoured Regiment

1st Armoured Regiment is an armoured regiment of the Australian Army, and is the senior regiment of the Royal Australian Armoured Corps. The regiment is also the only one in the Australian Army to be equipped with main battle tanks. The regiment provides the basis for one of two battlegroups within 1 Brigade, the other coming from 5th/7th Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment.

The regiment was formed as the Australian 1st Armoured Car Squadron in 1946, following which it served as part of the occupation force in Japan following the Second World War. After the unit’s return two years later, it was expanded to a full regiment and renamed as the 1st Armoured Regiment, to be equipped with the Centurion. Initially though it used the Churchill. Because of the unsuitability of the Churchill, Australia was unable to provide the requested armour support during the Korean War.

In 1967, the regiment’s C Squadron was sent to Vietnam. Over the course of the next four years, all three of the regiment’s operational squadrons would see service in Vietnam, gaining four battle honours in the process.

In 1976, the Centurion was replaced in service by the Leopard 1, which it continues to use at the present. The regiment currently consists of three regular squadrons. Its Leopard MBTs will be replaced by 59 M1A1 Abrams MBTs by 2007.
