Footnote: C.D. Mulhall enlisted as a Private (NX11001) with the Australian Imperial Forces in New South Wales. The 2/31st Battalion was an infantry battalion of the Australian Army that served during the Second World War. It was raised in June 1940 and was assigned to the 25th Brigade, 7th Division. It initially served in the United Kingdom where it undertook defensive duties before being moved to the Middle East in 1941. After taking part in the fighting in Syria and Lebanon, the battalion undertook garrison duties around Tripoli before being transferred back to Australia in 1942. In late 1942, the battalion was sent to New Guinea, to fight against the Japanese along the Kokoda Track. They subsequently fought a number of battles throughout 1942, 1943 and early 1944. Their last campaign came in mid-1945 when they landed on Borneo. After the war, the battalion was disbanded in March 1946. NX11001 Private C.D. Mulhall's passing is documented in The Returned and Services League of Australia, New South Wales Branch "Reveille", Volume 64, Number 24 of January/February 1991, page 22, under the heading "Last Post" and subheading "Army".
