Cover Blurb:

The 6th 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 the commanders in New Guinea to call then into action.

They used the escarpment behind the coastal edge for their toughening up exercises  and were occasionally called upon to assist in other areas – such as the night a Hudson bomber crashed.

One night in 1943 an American cargo ship slammed into the rocks on the nearby coast and the men of 6th Machine Gun Battalion were involved in the rescue of the crew by means of a bosons chair. The crew was rescued but unfortunately several 6th Machine Gun Battalion men were swept from the rocks and drowned.

Finally their time for war arrived and the 6th Machine Gun Battalion headed north to play their part. After some effort and a long journey, they found themselves at Gusap, to defend an American airstrip against marauding Japanese.

They spent much of their time carrying out infantry patrols in the Finisterre Ranges where cut-off Japanese were still living.

With the war again moving north the 6th Machine Gun Battalion was sent home and was disbanded distributing the men in many directions as they were taken up reinforcement in various units.
