Best Answer

Tobruk changed hands many times in WW2. It is notable that both at Tobruk & Singapore many POWs were Australian. The soldiery of the Anzacs in WW2 was as before in WW1, of the highest order, their presence in the North Africa campaign vitally important. Thereafter they went to the pacific theatre to defend against Japan.
