The Battalion was raised in September 1914 from volunteers in Western Australia and South Australia. It landed in Gallipoli on 25th April 1915 as part of the 4th Australian Infantry Brigade and took part in the desperate fighting around Sari Bair. Following the evacuation, it moved to the Western Front where three of its members gained the VC. The story of the Battalion is told with clarity and wry humour, each chapter having casualty statistics and details of awards.
