Today we set up the Australian tent for this weekend’s celebrations at the local village green.
We will be selling Australian souvenirs and our knitted poppies to raise funds for the Pozieres Memorial Park. The crowd will be watching the “Son et Lumiere” – the spectacular Sound and Light show which is a re-enactment based on stories of bravery from both the Commonwealth Forces and the Germans.
Preparations are underway for today’s Memorial Service being organised by the Pozieres Remembrance Association at 6pm (Pozieres time). We will be laying wreaths at the Australian 1st Division Memorial with all the local townspeople and visitors. The Australian official ticketed Government Memorial Service will take place at 4pm Saturday.
