The shattered back gardens of the village of Pozieres, seen from the Pozieres-Bapaume road. In the distance on the far right is 'Gibraltar', the German fortified observation post. In the foreground are sandbags from an Australian trench that was dug in the first attack. Between 23 July and early September 1916, the 1st, 2nd and 4th Divisions between them launched 19 attacks on German positions in and around the ruins of Pozieres.
