New Zealand & Australian Division

The New Zealand and Australian Division was formed in December 1914 from the New Zealand Infantry Brigade, the 4th Australian Infantry Brigade and two mounted Brigades (1st Australian Light Horse and the New Zealand Mounted Rifles). These units were placed under the command of Major General Sir Alexander Godley, commanding the New Zealand Expeditionary Force. As the new Division was almost equally divided between New Zealand and Australian troops (except that New Zealand provided its artillery), the title chosen for it was the "New Zealand and Australian Division". The staff of the division came with Major General Godley from New Zealand.
