    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.

    The 2/14 Battalion was raised in Victoria in April 1940 and was initially stationed at Puckapunyal until it was sent to the Middle East. In early 1942, they were shipped back to Australia, disembarking in Adelaide where they camped at Springbark in the Adelaide Hills. They travelled to Melbourne by train and took some well earned leave. As the Japanese threat developed, they moved by train from the Watsonia camp in Melbourne to Glen Innes for a short period, before moving on to Yandina in Queensland. The Battalion embarked at Brisbane for the Papuan campaign, and between 16 August 1942 and 15 January 1943 fought on the Kokoda Track and at Gona.
