memorials Of the RATS OF TOBRUK 

These hi-resolution images of the CWG Memorials have been secured by the generous support and donations of

Descendants of the Rats of Tobruk Association and the Descendants of the 2/24th Infanty Battalion groups on FaceBook.

Some memorials are included for non-Rats but were secured specifically for the unit or by a known relative.

As such we have taken the step of protecting these images by watermarking each image so that it cannot be copied and used elsewhere.

If you are descendant of one of these soldiers we invite you to contact the group to obtain a watermark free version.

IF YOU ARE NEW TO THIS SITE YOU WILL NEED TO SIGN UP TO GAIN ACCESS FOR THE FIRST TIME AND THIS IS A SEPARATE SIGN IN TO THE TRIBUTES IMAGES

This website and the information it contains would not be possible without the work of our many researchers behind the scenes, descendants and friends of the Rats. Special mention to Owen Carlton and Roger Murphy who have tirelessly worked for years verifying and documenting the Rats roll, Pierre Sellier (FR) for his artistic work creating the logo for the Association and banners, and others too many to mention who work towards keeping this story alive for the benefit of future generations. Much of the information reproduced has been sourced from the Australian War Memorial records, Battalion records, private memoirs, NAA and DVA service records and online documentation on events, places and people. All attempts possible have been made to verify its correctness and that due credit is acknowledged where known to the source.
