Clark Davis Ivins Memorial Travel Grant

Overview

The Clark Davis Ivins Memorial Endowment in 2014 by the family of Private Clark Davis Ivins, an Australian soldier who died during World War II. He was just 24-years-old when he died of wounds received at the Battle of Milne Bay in Papua New Guinea in 1942. 

His life may have been a short one, but the part he played in the Battle of Milne Bay, a battle that was the first Japanese defeat on land in the Pacific War, is one that certainly made a difference to the lives of many Australians, both young and old, today. 

To commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Milne Bay in 2017, the Endowment was expanded to offer the Clark Davis Ivins Memorial Travel Grant.
