    Mervyn (Doc) was an original member of the unit, embarking aboard “S.S. ZEALANDIA” on 8 Dec 1941 for Timor as a Private in No 8 Section, “C” Platoon. After the campaign on Timor, he embarked with the unit, for Australia aboard the Royal Dutch destroyer “Tjerk Hiddes” on either 11 Dec 1942 or 16 Dec 1942, as the embarkation rolls do not differentiate. 

    After leave and reorganization, he embarked with the unit for New Guinea aboard S.S. “DUNTROON” on 17 Jun 1943 as a Trooper in the Transport Section, Headquarters Group. As the unit had no transport, the Transport Sect was used as another fighting Section.

    Doc transferred to Headquarters, Australian Army Service Corps, 11th Division on 11 May 1944 and was discharged on 21 Mar 1946.
