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.
