The Australian Army  requisitioned Downlands College in Toowoomba and established the Medical Division for its 117th Australian General Hospital. The primary boys from Downlands College were evacuated to the Grande Hotel in Dalby. The sub-juniors were located in a Dalby boarding house, the junior boys were in a former maternity hospital and the sub-seniors, seniors and teaching staff were housed at the Queens Hotel.

The school was able to return to Toowoomba in 1944.
