The Australian Army took over about 20 acres of the Pacific Golf Links to establish a Vehicle Pool Depot at Mount Gravatt. In May 1943 there were 300 men working at this depot. Sgt. McNaught of the Queensland Police in an internal memo dated 15 May 1943 anticipated at that this may increase to a 1,000 men within 3 months.

 

Was this where 3 A.A.O.D.V.P. was located?

Or was it the 4th Australian Ordnance Vehicle Park on Kessels Road?
I believe the Pacific Golf Links were originally located on Kessels Road.

I believe they may have both been located there

Can anyone help me with more information?
