by John Campbell

Six Machine-Gun Battalion was raised in NSW and was sent to the south coast around Wollongong and Shellharbour to undertake their training and wait for their Commanders in New Guinea to call them into action. When their time for war arrived the battalion headed north to play their part. They found themselves at Gusap, to defend an American airstrip against marauding Japanese. They spent much of the time carrying out infantry patrols in the Finisterre Range. The battalion was eventually sent home and was disbanded.
