    The Regiment serves as an officer training unit in the Australian Army Reserve, with lineage dating back to 1884 as D Company 4th Battalion of the Victorian Rifles, when it was known as the University Company. General Sir John Monash was a Colour Sergeant of this unit before taking a commission in the colonial and later Commonwealth militia. As a training establishment they have never deployed as a fighting force, however MUR graduates have served in every major commitment of Australia's armed forces since Federation.

    The Shrine Monthly Remembrance Service honours Victorian servicemen and women from all branches of the Armed Forces. In particular, we remember Victorians who served during the First and Second World Wars, who once would have attended their annual Pilgrimage in this month, but due to the passage of time are no longer able to.

    In World War I, 89,000 Victorians served overseas. 19,000 made the supreme sacrifice.
    In World War II, 297,000 Victorians served overseas. 10,900 made the supreme sacrifice.

    We will remember them.
