The 4th Australian Field Regiment served in the Second World War, and saw action in New Guinea. This included at Lae, Ramu Valley and Bougainville. During the campaign at Bougainville, the regiment fired 62,723 rounds.
The Regiment's tree was established on the Shrine Reserve during the Australia Remembers Year in 1995. An annual pilgrimage takes place at this tree to honour the men who served in the regiment.
The 4th Australian Field Regiment is supported by students and staff of Caulfield Grammar, as participants in the Shrine's Adopt an Ex-Service Organisation program. This partnership fosters relationships and enables schools to carry on the legacy of their chosen Association.
While our doors are temporarily closed we will continue to honour the service and sacrifice of hundreds of thousands of Victorians.
Our services are streamed via Facebook, but you do not need to be a member to view.
