2/18th Battalion (AIF) Association

This is the official website of the 2/18th Battalion (AIF) Association. It contains the history of the Battalion and is dedicated to the men who served in it. The Association was formed in 1946 to formalise the camaraderie of the men who left Australia together to serve their country during World War II, those who joined up later, those who gave their lives and those who returned safely.
