Battle for Australia Day Commemoration Service
The Battle for Australia Day is commemorated every year on the first Wednesday in September, marking the first defeat of Japanese forces in the Battle of Milne Bay. It recognises all those who served on the home front in Australia, and who fought on land, air and sea in battles in the Coral Sea and New Guinea, including Milne Bay and the Kokoda Track, between 1942 and 1945. In Australia, we recall the attack by the Japanese in Darwin and Sydney harbour in 1942.
This year Directors Ronnie Moore and Lindsay Sharp represented the Club at the commemoration service held in Martin Place in the City on Wednesday 4th September 2019.
