1st Division Memorial at Pozières
In Pozières there is a street named after an Australian military formation. At the western end of the village, just off the main road (the D929), stands a shrine to Notre Dame de Bon Secours (Our Lady of Good Comfort) leading into ‘First Australian Division Street'. At the corner of that street and the Rue de L'Eglise, in its own grassed space, is the First Australian Division Memorial. The view from the memorial stretches northwards across the fields to where the tip of the great British memorial to the ‘missing' of the battles of the Somme at Thiepval appears above the trees. To the west, the view stretches back over the countryside towards Albert. (click on 1st Div inscription and insignia for larger image)
