G'day mate.
All RFSUs were in the business of sneaky peaky. Meaning minimal markings such as unit logos etc. You might have 11A on a door (which got some mud applied prior to going field).
Deny the enemy as much intel as possible!

I wouldn't consider it a dumb question especially if we have learned something from it.

Definitely not a dumb question.
Most Australians have no idea about the work done from the Pilbara, across the top end to Cardwell near Townsville, by the RFSUs.
The Enemy, Juddy? I'll give you the PC answer and talk about adf units paying the bad guy.
I won't mention the slave traders, people smugglers, drug runners and growers, gun runners, sly groggers etc. definitely won't mention them.......
