All units of the 31st Australian Infantry Battalion were placed on full-time duty from 22 October 1941 and at least part of "A" Company (mainly personnel from Ayr and Home Hill) went into camp in the grounds of the Mundingburra State School.

They had tents among the trees in the area adjoining the school building, and they used some of the school rooms for their orderly Room, etc. Their mess located under one of the school rooms. School classes continued as normal and some of the soldiers participated in the school air raid warning drills when they were held. There was one large air raid shelter located in the school grounds.
