This spectacular blast hole, 91 metres across and 21 metres deep, is what remains of a series of explosions which took place on 1st July 1916. They marked the beginning of the Battle of the Somme for British troops.
This memorial commemorates the part the Australian Corps played in the decisive battle of 4th July 1918. General Monash, an Australian, led Australian and American troops to victory in just 93 minutes! On-site you can see a reconstructed example of a German trench.
