    The 9th Division fought in four major campaigns during the Second World War: the Siege of Tobruk 1941, the El Alamein battles 1942, the Huon Peninsula operations in New Guinea 1943, and the landings in British North Borneo 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 Division will be supported by students and staff of Scotch College, 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.
