14 September 1942

Many Australian wounded still adrift in jungle after Brigade Hill battle. Some being brought into Australian lines by Fuzzy Wuzzy stretcher bearers, Others lie unattended until they can be rescued by the Australians once they begin their advance agains the Japanese some weeks ahead.

One of the heroes of Isurava, Teddy Bear, wounded in the battle there and only able to walk backwards, moves back down the Track in a bizarre dance with a mate who can only walk when supported. They 'waltz' ino the Ausralian lines after more than 10 days struggling down the Track.

The first troops of 25th Brigade (3/31st, 2/33rd) are deployed around Ioribaiwa and Brigadier Ken Eather takes command.
