The Australian Special Wireless Group was one of the army's most secret signal intelligence units, which were responsible for intercepting the enemy's coded radio transmissions.
 
In April 1942, US general Douglas MacArthur, supreme commander of Allied forces in the Southwest Pacific area, arrived in Melbourne and established a new top-secret intelligence unit called Central Bureau, which was eventually housed in a mansion in the suburb of Ascot, Brisbane.
 
The Australian Special Wireless Group became a member of CB, putting it under direct US command.
