Official Book

Never Unprepared tells the story of the men from 26th Battalion. Their unit was one of many used in the critical days during the defence of Australia in WW2. It is a story about some of the 3,300 men who came from every Australian State and how they welded together with pride and tradition.

This history of the 26th Australian Infantry Battalion (AIF) is a valuable contribution to Australian military history.

Our price is $60.00 (AUD) plus $10.00 post and package. To reserve your copy of Never Unprepared send us an email today.
