    The 9th Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment (9RAR) was raised in November 1967 for service in the Vietnam War. After training and a working up period, the unit was deployed to Vietnam in November 1968 where it saw active service over the next 12 months as part of the 1st Australian Task Force (1ATF). 

    An annual service is held each year on the first Sunday following Remembrance Day to commemorate the raising of the unit, and its first and last days of active service in Vietnam.

    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.
