This annual pilgrimage by the Friends of the 15th Brigade commemorates the Battle at Fromelles, fought on 19 July 1916. While we cannot gather together due to COVID-19 restrictions, we bring you the recording of last year's commemorative broadcast so that the service and sacrifice of thousands is still remembered.
This was the first major action involving Australian troops on the Western Front. It proved disastrous, with nearly 2,000 Australians killed in attacks on strong German positions.
