100 years ago, Australian units helped defend the French town of Villers-Bretonneux. Just three years after the Gallipoli landing, it was a remarkable victory that turned around Germany's offensive on the Western Front. Today, we Remember.
“In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie, In Flanders fields.” At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we shall remember them. Lest We Forget.
