It was raised in 1916 and fought with distinction in the trenches of the Western Front in World War I. Between the two World Wars the 3rd Division remained alert to the growing danger of Germany and Japan, and its members prepared to face the coming threat. When World War II began the Division again came forward, first to help form the 2nd Australian Imperial Force, and later to turn back the Japanese threat from the north.... In 1991, after 75 years of service the 3rd Division was disbanded' [wrapper blurb]. Item #157142
