Hill 104 near Villers-Bretonneux is the perfect location for their Memorial. From the top of the Memorial, there are commanding views of the local countryside, which gives a better understanding about the conditions faced in these battles.

We travelled from Australia and made a road trip from Paris to visit this sacred site. Very moved by the enormity of the graveyard. Demonstrates the futility of war. Impeccably kept graves, gardens and buildings. Climbed the 142 steps to the top of the central...More

The new memorial does our diggers proud. They are portrayed with dignity and respect. The entire trip around the memorial from the outside monument and wall to the interactive walk-through in the centre is beyond words, the whole thing leaves you with a sense of...More
