This annual pilgrimage by the Friends of the 15th Brigade commemorates the Battle at Fromelles, fought on 19 July 1916. 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.
