Posted on: Mon 15 Feb 2021
During WW2, 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 it 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 of the era, and little known Armoured Corps history.
