This Remembrance Day marks the 100th anniversary of the World War 1 Armistice. This was a declaration that ended the fighting which had started in the year 1914.
The July victory at Hamel followed nearly 100 days later with the Australian troops breaching the German Beaurevoir Line at Montbrehain. The divisions defeated 39 divisions of the Imperial German Army, liberated 116 French towns and villages and captured almost 30,000 prisoners.
Linton Reynolds has researched the local enlistees who fought in this battle. This session will look at the history of the events that took place between July and November.
This is a free event, however, you will need to register here.
Address: Kelmscott Library, 2784 Albany Highway, Kelmscott Date: Every second Tuesday of the month
