To Flanders Fields, 1917 Commemoration

The remains of five AIF soldiers will be laid to rest today with full military honours in the Buttes New British Cemetery at Polygon Wood, Belgium.  The remains were discovered by chance in September 2006 during roadwork and pipe-laying excavations near the small village of Westhoek.  This is situated in the middle of the dreaded Ypres-Passchendaele Salient where up to half a million casualties on both sides fell, of which tens of thousands were either never recovered or were unidentifiable.

Exhibitions, Lawrence of Arabia and the Light Horse Loans, Our exhibition

A while back, one of our regular readers was talking to me about what we were doing and expressed some surprise at what effort is going into this exhibition.
