Categories: Australia, World War II | Australian Army

This category is managed by the World War II Project in association with the Categorization Project. For assistance with this or related categories ask in G2G making sure to tag your question with both categorization and World_War_II.
This is a mid-level category. Profiles should be added to the narrowest category possible, but may be placed here when further information is not known. See How to Categorize.

During the Second World War years of 1939 to 1945 there were three branches to the Australian Army: the continuing mostly Australian Army (Militia) forces, authorised by parliament for service on Australian soil only; a special overseas expeditionary force authorised by separate Act of Parliament, the Second Australian Imperial Force (2nd AIF); and the Volunteer Defence Corps (VDC), similar to Britain's Home Guard. The three were distinct in reality and, to avoid confusion, should be kept distinct on WikiTree. Each of the three branches are sub-categories to this page. There were also three distinct women's services: Australian Women's Army Service (AWAS), Australian Army Nursing Service (AANS), and Australian Army Medical Women's Service (AAMWS).

All came under the office of the Chief of the General Staff. And a worse-case scenario could not have been planned, with Lieutenant General Ernest Squires (13 Oct-26 Jan) dying in office, Major General John Northcott (27 Jan-17 Mar) filling-in for seven weeks, General Sir Brudenell White (18 Mar-13 Aug) being killed in an aircrash, all before one year was past! Little wonder then that Lieutenant General Vernon Sturdee was kept in the office for the next two years.

Profiles should be assigned to the unit of service when possible; just click on Category: Australian Army Units, World War II below.
