Dedicated to those who served with 1 Field Survey Company which was raised from the Northern Command Field Survey Unit in 1940 for service in WWII.  The unit was based at Kilcoy Showgrounds where they developed their surveying, mapping & military skills prior to undertaking urgently required mapping in South East Queensland.

In 1942 the unit was deployed to North Queensland and re-designated 5 Field Survey Company, undertaking mapping of the peninsula and coastal areas.

Sections of the unit were deployed throughout the South West Pacific theatre until 1945 ; where for the first time survey sections were allocated to the 7th & 9th Divisions in direct support.
