"Kilmory", 6 Wentworth Street, Point Piper was commandeered by the military during WWII from Sir Alexander MacCormick to establish Eastern Area Headquarters on 15 May 1942. The Operations Record Book for Headquarters Eastern Area shows that Eastern Area Headquarters was formed at 6 Wentworth St., Edgecliff on 15 May 1942. Whilst it states being at Edgecliff, "Kilmory" is actually at 6 Wentworth Street, Point Piper. The building used by the RAAF at Edgecliff was "Craig-y-more". However an old newspaper article suggests that Craig-y-mor" (without the "e") was at 69 Wolseley Road, Point Piper. Another article states that it was used as an RAAF Officers Mess. Before the war "Craig-y-mor" was the residence of the Consul-General for Japan.

"Redleaf" was used as Barracks for the WAAAFs that worked at No. 2 Training Group at Kilmory.

"Kilmory" was built in 1912 for Sir Alexander MacCormick, who was a surgeon and a member of the Sydney University Medical School. After the war, it became Riverview College and then became a Franciscan Retreat.
