The 2/12th Field Ambulance carried out their basic training at Cowra in New South Wales where they were in support of the 23rd Australian Infantry Brigade. The 2/12th Field Ambulance relocated with the 23rd Australian Infantry Brigade from Cowra to Winnellie just south of the RAAF Darwin airfield in the Northern Territory in March 1941.
