Our Association is very passionate about Pozières and the recognition that these brave young men who fought and paid the supreme sacrifice there, 101 years ago, are further honoured at the location in which they now rest.
As a Project for the Centenary of the ANZAC, and as a tribute to the Soldiers who fought and died there, we, along with the Village of Pozieres, are planning to build a Memorial Park. The land selected for the Park is the land between the Water Tower at the North of the Village and 30 meters past the Windmill site along the D929, and from the D929 across to the Courcelette Road. This is part of the land that Charles Bean describes as “’a site more densely sown with Australian sacrifice than any other place on earth’”.
Our Park will provide a suitable memorial to those Soldiers, and in addition will protect this land into the future.
To raise the money to build the Park, our Association is selling bricks that will be endorsed with the buyers name and used in the construction of the Park.
Each brick costs $50.00 and can be purchased by either clicking on the slouch hat at the bottom of the page, or the donate button below.

If you have a relative who paid the supreme sacrifice I ask you to go to our Honour Roll under the heading of Men of Pozieres and please check that their name is there.
With the help of public donations we have been able to purchase a brick for the 41 men who lost their lives in Afghanistan. This marks 100 years of Commemorating Australian Service. Their names are also under the tab In Memory of those who Served.
