NEAR SEYMOUR, VIC
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.
I'd like to thank Darryl Payne for his assistance with this web page.
Can anyone help me with more information?
