14 HEAVY ANTI-AIRCRAFT BATTERY

 

The 14 Heavy Anti-aircraft Battery (14 HAA Bty) was based at the Oval in Darwin and just outside the then Darwin township at Parap. 14 HAA Bty left Circular Quay in Sydney on the ship HMT Zealandia on 22 November 1940. They had stopovers at Brisbane and Thursday Island on their way to Darwin.

The Oval was the local football field adjacent to the harbour cliffs. The Oval was located at the northern end of the Esplanade directly opposite the then New Darwin Hotel.
