Cate Clark: Gunnedah and the 1st Aust Armoured Div
Posted on: Mon 21 May 2018
During WWII, this sleepy little area of Northern NSW became home for a while to around 20,000 troops of Australia’s 1st Armoured Division.
Cate Clark, a Gunnedah local historian, tells us why the troops were there, and the impact they had on the locals. It’s a fascinating look at how Australia prepared for an expected invasion by the Japanese and gives us a glimpse into country life in that era and little known Armoured Corps history.
