Comments: Barracks Patch – 41st Battalion (Royal New South Wales Regiment).

The 41st Battalion, The Royal New South Wales Regiment, (41 RNSWR), is an infantry battalion of the Australian Army.

A Reserve unit, it is one of four battalions of the Royal New South Wales Regiment and is attached to the 8th Brigade, 2nd Division.

It is based in northern New South Wales, with its headquarters in Lismore and depots in a number of locations including Tweed Heads, Taree, Grafton, Kempsey, Port Macquarie and Coffs Harbour.

In its present form the battalion was raised in 1965, however, it can trace its lineage back to a Scottish Rifles unit formed in 1899. It also perpetuates the battle honours and traditions of a battalion that served on the Western Front during the First World War.
