Country Victoria's Own 7th and 8th Battalion Military History Book

This Battalion History Book traces the evolution of the 7th and 8th military Battalion for over 150 years. Represented today by the 8/7 RAR its roots go as far back as the Ballarat Rifle Regiment and the Bendigo Rifle Regiment, both formed in 1858. In the following 150 years, the citizen forces of both cities have seen numerous changes. Through the years, Ballarat has maintained an infantry presence.

'Country Victoria's Own' records the history of the Ballarat Bendigo Infantry Battalions and the units in major cities and towns that form the 'predecessors' in the sub-title. Over the years, Ballarat has been linked with major Victorian military centres such as Geelong, Mildura, Bendigo, Shepparton and Warrnambool, along with smaller towns such as Ararat, Maryborough, Hamilton, Portland, Swan Hill, Echuca and Cobram, and southern New South Wales towns including Wentworth and Deniliquin. This book reveals the interconnection between those towns and the military history of northern and western Victoria.

A Large history supported with numerous illustrations.
