Australian Divisions and Battalions World War I
The documents below are a list of Australian Divisions in World War I, including all infantry and mounted divisions prepared by Mr Denis McCarthy, Military Historian and Battle Field Tour Guide from Toowoomba, Queensland. Australia and New Zealand raised all volunteer forces. The Australians formed the Australian Imperial Force, (A.I.F.) which was broken up into 5 Infantry Divisions and 2 Light Horse Divisions. Each Division had 3 Brigades and each Brigade had 4 Infantry Battalions. Together with New Zealand, they formed the Australian and New Zealand Army Corp which served throughout the war. The list below shows the different divisions and the subordinate units that were raised separately in the various states. This is an interesting tool to use whilst doing your research or when overseas visiting the Western Front. There are five Division Memorials in France, which the School Battlefield Tour in 2015 visited together with all the Memorials and Cemeteries of Toowoomba Grammar School Old Boys.
