Never Late - The 2/9th Australian Infantry Battalion 1939 -1945
Formed in November 1939, the 2/9th was the first battalion raised in Queensland. Over six years of war and seven campaigns the Battalion suffered 975 battle casualties but never lost a man as a POW and carried evey one if its catualties from the field. As the successor to the 9th Battalion of the First AIF, the 2/9th wore a rectangular colour patch of Black over Blue with the border of grey that signified the Second AIF. Since the end of the war this has been a great source of pride to the men of the 2/9th Battalion. Published in association with the Australian Army History Unit. Hardback, illustrated, 448 pages.
