The infantry battalions, four in each of the two brigades, were: 1st Brigade- Benbow, Collingwood, Hawke and Drake. 2nd Brigade- Howe, Hood, Anson and Nelson. A machine gun battalion (9th Bt, RND) was also raised for the Division. Two of the infantry battalions were disbanded after Gallipoli, the men being absorbed by the remaining six. Naval cap tallies were worn until 1916 when six different metal badges for the infantry battalions were produced.
