Help required Re Australian Army Unit Colour Patch

Would a Military Policeman wear the Australian Defence HQ colour patch below if working at the HQ or wear his company colour patch?

Thanks for looking

are you sure they would wear the HQ patch?
if seconded to the HQ maybe.

Gents, the key word is 'posted.' If any soldier is posted to a Unit, HQ or otherwise, they wear the colour patch of the posted Unit.

On attachment etc, they retain the parent Unit's color patch.
