    Roderick was an original member of the unit, embarking aboard “S.S. ZEALANDIA” on 8 Dec 1941 for Timor as a Private in No 1 Sect, “A” 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 as a Lance Corporal in No 1 Sect, “A” Troop, for New Guinea aboard S.S. “DUNTROON” on 17 Jun 1943.

    Roderick was wounded in action at “MAULULI”, New Guinea on 14 Aug 1943 and returned to Australia.

    He was discharged on 14 Mar 1944.

    Roderick was made a Life Member of the Association in 1975.
