Men of the 162nd Infantry storm a beachhead during a practice assault at a combined training school at Toorbul Point (Queensland). -
From The 41st Infantry Division History Book “At Rockhampton the battle training became realistic as the men readied themselves for jungle and amphibious warfare. Queensland was hot and the troops spent week-ends rushing for buses to the beach at Yeppoon and Rockhampton. The 163d, 186th, and 162d Infantry Regiments, respectively, went down to Toorbul (Terrible) Point on the coast north of Brisbane, a battalion at a time, for amphibious training under the Australian Army. Each battalion trained on the Fitzroy River prior to training at Toorbul Point. All except the 3d Battalion of the l62d Infantry spent a week in rest camp near Yeppoon following the amphibious training. Meanwhile some of the junior officers were sent to Australian-conducted tactical schools. Everything pointed to battle in New Guinea and the men were ready.” #military#militaria#ww2#japan#pacific#41#usa#war#attack#invasion#philippines#america#tank#rifle#fight#follow#like#training#explosion
