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

    We will remember them.

    The 2/14 Field Regiment was raised on 17 October 1940, initially headquartered at Victoria Barracks, Melbourne, and later moved to Puckapunyal. They were stationed in New Guinea in 1944, providing necessary artillery support for the infantry and training; then moved to New Britain in January 1945 to relieve American troops and continue a limited offensive against the Japanese. At the end of the war the regiment moved to Rabaul as a garrison force, where it was gradually stood down due to demobilisation, until they returned to Australia in 1946 to be disbanded. 

    The 2/14 Field Regiment will be supported by students and staff of Christ Church 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.
