Don't know about the AIF, but the current British Army states this for Corporals, so may be something along the same lines:

"As a corporal, your opportunities to serve outside the battalion

at Extra Regimental Employment ("E") appointments, will increase. Whilst not an essential

pre-requisite for further promotion, completion of a tour of duty at "E" can serve to advantage you

at promotion boards who will be keen to see how you have fared against wider competition than just

your own battalion"

Extra-Regimentals were, to my understanding, NCO's who were carried on the Battalion's strength but were actually surplus to the published war establishment. As such, they could be employed in any role they were suitable for, until a vacancy came up for a regimental posting.
