12th/16th Hunter River Lancers
12/16 HRL was formed on 1 May 1948, although it draws its lineage from units that were originally formed in the 1880s.
It is currently a Light Cavalry Scout unit and equipped with Bushmaster Protected Mobility Vehicles.
In recent years the Regiment has provided individuals as reinforcements to round-out Regular Army units deploying overseas on peacekeeping operations and operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The motto of 12th/16th Hunter River Lancers is 'Virtutis Fortuna Comes', which is Latin for ‘Fortune Favours the Brave’.
