The old no man's land of Fromelles battlefield viewed from the north-east corner of Sugar Loaf Salient looking towards the line from which the 15th Australian Infantry Brigade began their attack on 19 July 1916. During the engagement the 5th Division, penetrated the third German line, but was forced to withdraw owing to German troops flooding the ditches in which the Australians had entrenched and to the exposure of the flank to heavy artillery and machine gun fire.
