CHEMICAL WARFARE SCHOOL
BRISBANE, QLD DURING WW2

The Chemical Office of Base Section Three, US Army established its Chemical Warfare School located at 107 Windermere Rd., Hamilton, Brisbane, in south east Queensland in about July 1942. In October 1943, the Commandant of the school was Major W.O. Hanson. 107 Windermere Road is now a block of units called "Yarrum" which do not look old enough to have existed during WW2. Can anyone tell me what 107 Windermere Road comprised during WW2? I guess another possibility is that the Road has been renumbered.

107 Windermere Road now appears to be the block of units
called "Yarrum" at the end of the tree lined driveway.

There was a Chemical Warfare School Annexe located at 60 Riverview Terrace, Hamilton, Brisbane which is just around the corner from 107 Windermere Road.
