BATTLE FOR AUSTRALIA DAY 2014

Each year, on the first Wednesday in September, we commemorate Battle for Australia Day, marking the defeat of Japanese forces in the Battle of Milne Bay. We remember those who fought and died defending our nation during the Second World War.

This day of remembrance recognises the sacrifice of those who served on the home front in Australia, and of those who fought on land, air and sea in battles in the Coral Sea, Papua and New Guinea between 1942 and 1945.
