24 LINES OF
MILITARY SIGNALS UNIT
INDOOROOPILLY, BRISBANE, QLD
The headquarters of the Military Signals Unit, 24 Lines of Communication (24 L of C) was located at Long Pocket, adjoining to the Indooroopilly Golf Course in Brisbane, Queensland during WW2.
AWAS were attached to the Military Signals Unit at Indooroopilly. The AWAS Camp (24 L of C) was located nearby and would now be part of St. Peter's Lutheran College grounds.
Most of the personnel of the Military Signals Camp and the AWAS Camp manned teleprinters at the Queensland University which was General Blamey's Advanced Land Headquarters, where important signals were sent and received from units in the war zones. The AWAS also manned switchboards at Victoria Barracks.
Can anyone help me with more information?
