This site is dedicated to the ANZAC servicemen and women from Australia and New Zealand who served on the Western Front in France and Belgium in the War of 1914-1818.


Over time material reflecting the sacrifices and achievements of the ANZACs will be added to this site.

The Australian War Memorial (AWM) runs a tour to the Western Front each year as a follow-up tour to the AWM's Gallipoli and Dawn Service tour. The tour visits each of the 5 Australian Divisional monuments as well as significant battlefields where the Australians and New Zealanders fought in France and Belgium. Visits are also made to Vimy Ridge and the Normandy invasion beaches.

 

The videos on this site capture the sites visited during the Australian War Memorial's conducted tour of the Western Front in April-May 2007.

Our sympathy to Di at this sad loss. Bob was a gentle soul and a nice bloke. Sadly missed.

 

Rest in peace Bob
