A Great Memorial (rebuilt after vandal & weathering damage) and it captures the essence of the message. The 5 Australian Divisions were finally grouped under an Australian Commander in Lt Gen Sir John Monash. Interestingly I found out he was battle field knighted ! The...More

As my wife's grandfather fought at Pozieres it was really important for us to visit the Australian memorials dedicated to the Batte the Somme. Now so beautful but still Solomon sad places where many young men lost their lives needlessly.
