Default Ausie help required please

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

Steve

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.
