In April 1966, 145 Signal Squadron was raised and deployed to South Vietnam and incorporated 709 and 527 Signal Troops.   The squadron's role was to provide Force Communications.  The unit was replaced by 110 Signal Squadron in early 1967 and return to 2nd Signal Regiment in Watsonia, Victoria.

145 Sig Sqn Patch

When the 2nd Signal Regiment was disbanded in 1993, the Land Force Signal Unit (LFSU) was raised in its place.   LFSU retained the original squadron names from the Regiment – 145 Signal Squadron became responsible for communications for the Logistic Support Group and 110 Signal Squadron became a General Reserve Squadron.   In 1995 LFSU relocated to Sydney.   As part of this process the two squadrons were split into separate independent units.   145 Signal Squadron  located at Vincent Lines with the Holsworthy elements of 110 Signal Squadron.

On 30 August 2006, the 17th Signal Regiment (17 Sig Regt) was formally raised. 17 Sig Regt will continue the tradition of quality Communication and Information System (CIS) support to the Army 3rd line logisticians.  In its current state 17 Sig Regt consists of a Regimental Headquarters, 110 Signal Squadron, 145 Signal Squadron, Operational Support Squadron (OSS) and 127 Signal Troop.

After 6 years operation 17 Sig Regt was disbanded on the 13 Nov 2012.   As a result, 145 Sig Sqn is now an independent Squadron supporting the 17th Combat Services Support Brigade (17 CSS Bde).
