Australian Platoon Scout Team
Japanese ambushes required a change in tactics to the desert fighting experienced so far. Instead of having the majority of a platoon’s sections ‘up front’, the Australians learnt to hold their platoons main strength in reserve until the enemy revealed himself. The forward scouts led the way for their platoon, risking death at any moment, this job was rotated regularly to make sure the scouts were always alert.
