During The Battle of Pozieres, from 23 July 1916 until 7 August 1916, the AIF suffered enormous losses. Charles Bean, Australia’s official war historian described the Pozieres ridge as being more densely sown with Australian sacrifice than any other place on earth.
The First Battalion Association will hold its annual commemorative service at Saint Columbo Uniting Church, on the corner of Ocean and Forth Street, Woollahra on Sunday 22nd July at 9:30am.
