About this equipment
It was here that the 2nd Australian Division chose to erect a memorial to their memory in 1925. The initial memorial depicted an Australian soldier bayonetting a German eagle, but this statue was taken down by the Germans during the Second World War.
The Battle of Mont Saint Quentin, during which 3000 soldiers were made casualty, is recalled and remembered through an interpretative walking trail, created by the Historial, Museum of the Great War with the support of the Australian Embassy and the town of Péronne.
