    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.

    Villers Bretonneux Day, April 24th, marks the successful counterattack and recapture of Villers Bretonneux in 1918. This action played a significant role in the overall defeat of the German attack launched in March 1918. 

    A service is held annually by the Friends of the 15th Brigade on April 24th at the Shrine of Remembrance. The 15th Brigade, which had suffered dreadfully in the ANZAC's first major action on the Western Front at Fromelles, together with the 13th Brigade, was instrumental in this action.

    Villers Bretonneux is today the main Australian site of commemoration in France.
