The home of past and present 85'ers
Welcome to 85
Welcome to the 85 Transport Association – ‘The Road Runners’.
This site is for all past and present members of 85 Transport Troop / Platoon. It is intended to act as a place where you can:
- read news of interest to members,
- see our photos
- communicate with friends,
- express your ideas and opinions etc.
Formed in 1967, 85 Transport initially operated under the nickname of ‘Wheels Across Vietnam’. Sometime after its deployment to Vietnam it became known as the ‘Road Runners’. This nickname has persisted right up until today.
Today, 85 Transport Troop is a part of 26 Squadron of the Royal Australian Army Corps of Transport.
