The regiment was named in honour of General Sir John Monash, one of Australia’s most famous soldiers and arguably one of the most effective commanders on the Western Front during World War I. Its last Commanding Officer was Lieutenant Colonel Margaret Sorial, and the last Honorary Colonel was Major General Greg Garde.
