About This Unit

Big thumb 9th relawm07941.082

The 9th Battalion at Ennoggera near Brisbane, Queensland was the first battalion raised in the 3rd Brigade of the 1st Division, drawn from the "outer' or smaller States.  The colour patch reveals its connections. The rectangle signifies the First Division. The pale blue lower portion indicates the third brigade in the Division and the black upper the first battalion of the brigade. An 'A' was added after ANZAC to indicate formations and units that served there.

Like its sister Battalions in the 3rd Brigade, they would go on to make history at Gallipoli as the Covering Force - the first ashore.
