The 2/1 Australian Armoured Brigade Reconnaissance Squadron started its career as the H.Q. Sqn, 1 Aust Armd Div in October 1941 but, on disbandment of the Armd Div in September 1943, was reformed as the Reconnaissance Sqn of 1 Aust Armd Bde. In this new role, the Sqn was equipped with M6 Staghound armoured cars.

In the beginning of 1945, following the disbandment of 1 Aust Armd Bde, the Sqn was reconstituted as "An Armoured Squadron: Special Equipment" and designated 2/1 Aust. Armd Bde Recce Sqn. This Sqn was to be equipped with the specialist "Circus Equipment" - armoured vehicles fitted with flame-throwers, dozer blades or bridges - and attached to the armoured units supporting the Australian landing forces on Borneo.
