    We visit here also the John Monash Center, drive to Le Hamel Memorial with its very fine view and also so important as the final offensive of the summer 1918 started from here, the deepest crater on the Western Front : Lochnagar Crater - some 32 m. deep and finally the THIEPVAL MEMORIAL to the MISSING

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Museum of the Battle of Fromelles, Rue de la Basse Ville, 59249 Fromelles France

    From here, the Australians launched another offensive in july 16, as the German resistance on the initial attack was too havy. Many remains have only been found back 90 years later. We will visit the VC Corner Cemetery and the Australian Memorial Parc
