    In brilliant sunshine, between crowds of cheering and admiring spectators, the first Australian contingent bound for the Western Front is marching through Martin Place, Sydney, on the first stage of their journey. They belong to the Special Division, known as the Second A.I.F Australian Imperial Force, consisting of men who had volunteered for service either at home or abroad. On November 29, 1939, the Australian Premier Mr. Menzies, announced that they would proceed overseas early in 1940.
