Description

Near Morlancourt Ridge, France. 7 April 1918. The 37th Battalion occupying a sunken road in front of Marett Wood, near Morlancourt Ridge, when the enemy occupied the ridge in the distance. This road marked the approximate Australian front line and was taken up by the 10th Australian Infantry Brigade, on coming into the area on 27 March, to resist the German advance on Amiens. The town of Morlancourt was just beyond the ridge in the centre of the picture.
