“The unit originally left Australia as a completely Victorian unit but returned with representatives from all States in the Commonwealth.  The 2/29th Battalion was the first Victorian unit into action in the Malayan campaign and has the distinction of two sets of battle honours, one for the bloody Muar Road battle where the battalion initially and later in association with the 2/19th Battalion held the crack Japanese 5th Division, the Imperial Guards, for six days to enable the whole British force to be withdrawn behind Yong Peng, and the second for their part in the battle for Singapore Island.”
