IN TOOWOOMBA, QLD
The Church of England Boy's School in Toowoomba was acquired by Captain Melloy of Hirings Section, No. 1 L of C, for the Australian Army. The staff and students were moved eastwards to St. Hilda's School at Southport in April 1942.
The school was used as the Headquarters, 1st Australian Army under the command of Lieutenant-General Sir John Lavarack. (Another source indicated that Clifford House was used as Army Headquarters by General Lavarack and General Bridgeford.)
Can anyone help me with more information?
