From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Services Reconnaissance Department (SRD), also known as Inter-Allied Services Department (IASD), Special Operations Australia (SOA) and Section A, Allied Intelligence Bureau was an Australian intelligence and special operations agency of World War II. Authorised by General Thomas Blamey in March 1942, the unit was originally organised and run by a British officer, Major G. Egerton Mott. When the Allied Intelligence Bureau (AIB) was established in June 1942, SOA became a branch of AIB.
