The Soldiers that fought and died at Pozieres were for the most part survivors of the disastrous Gallipoli Campaign.
Thrown into Battle at Pozieres, the men of the 1st, 2nd and 4th Divisions suffered what is said to have been the most concentrated artillery barrage of all time,
With German Forces on three sides, and their own artillery firing from the rear, these men lived and fought in a constant rain of shells.
The intensity of the barrage can be noted from the Rolls of Honour, with over 4,000 of the 7.000 killed being listed as missing and commemorated at the Villers-Bretonneux Memorial. These have been identified in blue.
Our Association would like to express our appreciation to Dominique Zanardi, Pozieres France for the great work he has done in compiling this List, and for having granted us permission to use the Lists on our pages.
To quote from AB Banjo Patterson’s Poem “We’re all Australians Now”
“The mettle that a race can show
Is proved with shot and steel,
And now we know what nations know
And feel what nations feel”
