Our Pozieres Gun

...not so rare?...

´╗┐An  article in the Australian War Memorial Blog with a lengthy dissertation about the Pozieres guns including photographs of 'our' gun when it was up in the old Museum location. Interesting reading.

An oustanding item

An Australian flag made from over 1000 names of soldiers who died at Gallipoli. We recently received a reproduction of this item for the Museum.

Pozieres Dinner - Tin Can Bay

A most successful activity held by the Battalion at the Tin Can Bay Field Firing Range -a wet night but a thoroughly enjoyable one.

The sound of live firing punctuated the evening - drizzling rain only added to the ambience and a series of playlets transported us to the battlefields of France. An excellent effort by all involved.
