Ypres, Belgium. c. 1923. A monument erected at Hill 60 to commemorate men of the 1st Tunnelling Company, Royal Australian Engineers (RAE), who died during mining operations between 1916-11 and 1917-07. This structure replaced an earlier one constructed in 1919 by the Company. This replacement is very plain and bears no symbols whereas the first memorial was surmounted by a cross. Note the British memorial in the left rear.
