The 2nd/30th Training Group comprises a headquarters with Rifle Company Butterworth under command. The unit is commanded by a lieutenant colonel and consists of three warrant officers, two Sergeants and four locally employed civilians.
The 2nd/30th Training Group was formally established on 11 October 2007. In a simple ceremony at the Kelamah River Memorial, in Gemencheh, Malaysia, an original member of the 2nd/30th Infantry Battalion, AIF, presented the unit with its flag. The 2nd/30th Training Group pledged to honour the brave deeds of the 2nd/30th Infantry Battalion and to keep the memory of their service and captivity alive.
Whilst the numerical lineage of the 2nd/30th Training Group began in NSW in 1915, the 2nd/30th Training Group evolved from units that had seen a constant presence at Butterworth since 1970, after the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) and later the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) took over the role played by the Royal Air Force (RAF) prior to Malaysian independence
Today, Rifle Company Butterworth conducts a variety of training activities from bi-lateral exercises with the armies of Brunei, Malaysia, Thailand, and Singapore to live fire activities at both Gurun Ranges and PULADA in Malaysia.
The Australian Army utilises the deployment as a valuable training ground for its junior commanders at the company level in an environment that is physically and mentally challenging and replicates the stress of operations away from the Australian cultural and physical environment.
