9th Infantry Brigade Headquarters (NSW) 9th Brigade, 3rd Division, AIF

About This Unit

The 9th Brigade was in the 3rd Division of the AIF, and was raised in 1916 as part of the expansion of the AIF.

The 9th Brigade was comprised of units that drew most of their men from NSW and comprised the 33rd, 34th 35th and 36th Battalions.

The 3rd Division was to be commanded by Major General John Monash and was concentrated in the UK for work up training during 1916, by which time all of the other Divisions had been committed to battle. Deployed in very  late 1916, the Third Division's first major action was at Messines in June 1917.


We would particularly like to encourage individual historians researchers or members of unit associations to contribute to the development of a more detailed history and photographs pertaining to this unit and its members.
