    The Battle of Amiens, 8th August 1918, was one of the most successful advances made by Allied forces during the war. The efforts of the ANZAC Corps were orchestrated by General Sir John Monash and would be much lauded as an example of combined arms warfare in a conflict mostly remembered for the stalemate of trench warfare.

    Each year at 8am on the 8th of August a service is held at the Shrine of Remembrance to mark this battle and remember the men who fought it.
