The 42nd Battalion was raised at Ennogerah Camp in Brisbanes suburbs from recruits drawn from Queensland.  It was to be the second battalion of the 11th Brigade drawn from the smaller States.  Its colour patch tells the story;  the eliptical shape denoted the 3rd Division, the light blue lower half the third brigade of the division and the purple upper half,  the first battalion of that brigade.
