The AWAS Camp (24 L of C) was located in an area at Indooroopilly which would now be part of St. Peter's Lutheran College grounds. It may have been named "2 Australian Women's Army Service Barrack".

AWAS from this camp were attached to the headquarters of the Military Signals Unit, 24 Lines of Communication (24 L of C) which was located at Long Pocket, adjoining to the Indooroopilly Golf Course.

Most of the personnel of the Military Signals Camp and the AWAS Camp manned teleprinters at the Queensland University which was General Blamey's Advanced Land Headquarters, where important signals were sent and received from units in the war zones. The AWAS also manned switchboards at Victoria Barracks.
