[Australian regiments]

Australian regiments

The following table probably does not contain all of the Australian units that were stationed in and around Fovant during World War I. However, these are the units that have so far been identified from photographs, letters and other sources.

Some of the unit titles are incomplete and there are almost certainly some duplicates. We stand ready to amend the list whenever new evidence becomes available. We will be grateful for any help that you can give.
