    The 9th Division fought in four major campaigns during the Second World War - the Siege of Tobruk in 1941, the El Alamein battles in 1942, the Huon Peninsula operations in New Guinea in 1943, and the landings in British North Borneo in 1945. 

    Each year near to 23 October a service is held to mark the beginning of the Second Battle of El Alamein (23 October - 5 November 1942), a battle which marked the beginning of the end for Axis forces in North Africa. 

    The 9th Australian Division Council will be joined by Scotch College for the commemorative service. This is part of the Shrine's ongoing 'Adopt an Ex-Service Organisation' program, interested schools can contact the Shrine for further information.
