Most of the men in the Battalion returned to Australia on board Esperance Bay, which arrived in Darwin on 30/9/1945.

While the ship was in Darwin, Pte. Vincent BYLOS became seriously ill, and was evacuated to 107 Australian General Hospital (107 AGH). Despite treatment, he died on 3/10/1945, and was laid to rest in the Adelaide River War Cemetery. He is the only member of the 2/30 Battalion buried in this cemetery.
