Last week I visited the Villers-Bretonneux Cemetery and Australian National Memorial in Amiens. This area of the Somme was fought over at 4.20am on the 8th August 1918 during WWI, which led to over 2000 deaths involving Australian and French soldiers. This memorial was erected in 1938, and was fought over again in 1941 during WW2.

It was strange to see bullet holes and graves stand together as a rememberence of the atrocities of war.

Villers-Bretonneux, France.
