11th Field Regiment As part of the restructuring of the Army (RTA) program, 1st Field Regiment amalgamated with 11th Field Regiment on 15 June 1997 (now wearing ATY 0014)48th Field Battery is a part of the Australian Army’s 9th Brigade, currently located at Keswick Barracks South Australia. It is tasked with engaging targets of immediate concern to units of the 9th Brigade and the provision of timely, intimate offensive fire support to such units. Until recently the battery was a six-gun battery utilising the US designed M2A2 Howitzer firing 105 mm ammunition, however, following the reorganisation of the Australian Army Reserve’s artillery units, the battery now uses the 81mm mortar as its primary weapon platform. The unit maintains a number of M2A2s, however, which are reserved for ceremonial occasions such as 21-gun salutes.The 48th Field Battery was formed at Tel el Kebir, Egypt, on 6 March 1916as part of the expansion of the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) that took place following the end of the Gallipoli campaign. Assigned to the 12th Field Artillery Brigade, 4th Division, the battery was transferred to Europe where it saw action in France with the 24th Field Artillery Brigade, employing the Ordnance QF 18 pounder. The battery saw action on the Western Front between June 1916 and January 1917, when it was disbanded.In 1921, the battery was re-raised as part of a wide-scale reorganisation of Australia’s part time military forces that saw units of the Citizens Force adopt the numerical designations of the AIF. At this time the battery was assigned to the 13th Field Brigade.The Battery was re-formed in 1939 and became part of the 6th/13th Field Regiment in 1988. Since the disbandment of the 6th/13th Field Regiment in 1997, the 48th Field Battery has served as an independent battery under the command of the 9th Brigade.
