Roger Mills SUTTON REMEMBERS WW1: Leave a Comment

The ANZACs on the Western Front – In commemorating the centenary of the Great War, the important role of the ANZACs – servicemen from Australia and New Zealand – is sometimes overlooked.

Yet they had the greatest number of casualties per man of all the Allied armies, were furthest from home and away the longest.  They were also the only volunteers.  The ANZACs were famous throughout Europe for their hard fighting, their hard swearing and complete indifference to rules and regulations.

In this illustrated talk on 25 April, ANZAC Day, Australian Tony Brett Young describes the substantial contribution made by the ANZACs on the Western Front from 1916 to the end of the war.  Tony has visited all their main battlefields in France and Belgium, and followed their triumphs and disasters.
