While our doors are temporarily closed we will continue to honour the service and sacrifice of hundreds of thousands of Victorians. A commemorative broadcast will be streamed at 1.30pm on behalf of the 2/14 Battalion Association. 

All are welcome to join us in remembrance via the link below.

The 2/14 Battalion was raised on 26 April 1940 from mostly Victorian volunteers. During the Second World War, the battalion saw action in Syria, Lebanon and Papua New Guinea. They notably took part in the Kokoda Campaign. Their final operation of the war was the landings at Balikpapan, Borneo in July 1945. After the Japanese surrender, they formed part of the occupation force on the Indonesian island now known as Sulawesi. They were disbanded on 22 February 1946.

Our services are streamed via Facebook but you do not need to be a member to view.
