Darryl Payne told me that the 2/22 Battalion camped along the Trawool Valley in Victoria. Darryly told me that it is easy to find where the camp area was as there is a giant 2/22 written in stones on the side of the hill at co-ordinates 37deg 05 min 15.00 secs, 145 deg 10 min 39.65 secs on Google earth.

Darryl would like to find any maps or photos of the camp. There was a railway siding running up into the site and the ruins of a platform are still visible along with other foundations from the camp.

There is a file in National Archives of Australia titled Trawool Engineers' Camp.

Units of the 26th Brigade were involved in exercise in the Trawool area in April 1940.
