The combined US/RAN force became known as the EMU Unit (Experimental Military Unit). Their motto, coined very early in their partnership, was ‘Get the bloody job done’.

The contingent contained twenty-four technical sailors and six support staff including a cook, steward, writer (clerk) and a medic. As well as eight pilots, four observers and four air-crewmen.
