BANDICOOT and Her sistership WALLAROO are former Tugs and are now officially classed as MSAs - Mine Sweepers (Auxilliary). Technically, the names of both Ships are not prefixed with HMAS (Her Majesty's Australian Ship) because neither is a commissioned vessel. They are instead referred to as MSA BANDICOOT / WALLAROO ;-)
