In September 1939, the 1st Military District of the Australian Army covered all of Queensland. The headquarters for the 1st Military District was located in Brisbane. District Troops for the 1st Military District were deployed as follows:-

District Troops:

5th Field Brigade, RAA (13th, 14th, 105th Btys) : Kelvin Grove

11th Field Brigade, RAA (42nd, 43rd, 111th Btys) : Kelvin Grove

7th Field Company, RAE: Ipswich

11th Field Company, RAE: Kelvin Grove

There have been rumours of an underground bunker system at Kelvin Grove. Probably another Urban Myth!!
