More About this Record

The New Zealand Scottish Regiment was formed in 1939 as a Territorial Force infantry unit from New Zealanders of Scottish descent. Fully mobilised in December 1941, and following training at Pukekohe, Tauherenikau & Linton, the 1st Battalion of the Regiment sailed to New Caledonia in December 1942 to join the 3rd New Zealand Division (as part of the 8th Infantry Brigade). The Battalion remained on New Caledonia until it was disbanded in July 1943 to provide reinforcements for the Division.
