Bulimba - Cairns Report

Operation Bulimba was a major attack by the 2/15th Battalion on 1 September 1942. It was the time when it sustained its highest number of casualties.  The Unit history - Caveant Hostes - tells the story in great detail.  Get more information on Bulimba and El Alamein from this page.

The following article from the Cairns Post gives the casualty list of many North and other Queensland members. A similar list was printed in a similar article in The Townsville Daily Bulletin.

The following picture was received from Doug Leslie and shows: 
"Some of the 67 German prisoners captured by the British forces in Egypt
