    It seems to be a record of the places an Australian unit fought in in WWII. Starting off in Syria and Palestine, on to battles in North Africa, Then with the Japaneese threat to Northern Australia all Australian units were withdrawn from North Africa and Returned Home, this particular unit then fought New Guinea and I think that Madang is in what is now Indonisia.Finally I suspect that the roll of honour remembere members of the unit that lost their lives.
