WWI BATTLEFIELDS, AUSTRALIAN ITINERARY (1 DAY)


ITINERARY purely designed for our Australian and New Zealand clients 

Your private guide will pick you up at 7.30 am to take you to the sites of Villers-Bretonneux where the Australian Army came to assist the
British Army in 1916. Villers-Bretonneux became famous in 1918, when the German advance on Amiens ended in the capture of the village by their tanks and
infantry on 23 April. On the following day, the 4th and 5th Australian Divisions, with units of the 8th and 18th Divisions, recaptured the whole of the
village and on 8 August 1918, the 2nd and 5th Australian Divisions advanced from its eastern outskirts in the Battle of Amiens.

First, your private guide will take you to the Adelaide Cemetery that was begun early in June 1918 and used by the 2nd and 3rd Australian
Divisions. It continued in use until the Allies began their advance in mid August, by which time it contained 90 graves. After the Armistice a large number
of graves were brought into the cemetery from small graveyards and isolated positions on the north, west and south of Villers-Bretonneux and they were,
without exception, those of men who died in the months from March to September 1918.

Then, you will visit the Australian National Memorial erected to commemorate all Australian soldiers who fought in France and Belgium
during the First World War, to their dead, and especially to name those of the dead whose graves are not known. The Australian servicemen named in this
register died in the battlefields of the Somme, Arras, the German advance of 1918 and the Advance to Victory.

After this visit, you will take the direction of the Franco-Australian Museum, unveiled the April 25th1975, is situated on the first floor
of the Victoria school.
The Museum tells the story of the Australian Imperial Force during the First World War, particularly on the Western Front in 1918.
It is now time for lunch in a nice, typical, local restaurant (your private guide will recommend it to you, not included in the price).

After the lunch, your private guide will drive you to Le Hamel where took place a successful attack launched by the Australian Corps of
the Australian Imperial Force and several American units against German positions in and around the town. The battle was the first time in the war that
American troops participated in an offensive action under non-American command. Ten American companies joined with Australian troops under Australian
command.

Then, you will see the impressive Lochnagar crater (if time), the largest crater ever made by man in anger is now a unique memorial to all
those who suffered in the Great War. It is dedicated to peace, fellowship and reconciliation between all nations who fought on the Western Front.

You will continue the day by the visit of Beaumont Hamel. At the time of WWI, Newfoundland was a British Colony to raise volunteer army.
At 7.30 am, on July 1st 1916, the men of the Royal Newfoundland regiment had scarcely left their trenches before they came under intense German machine-gun
fire. 30 minutes later only 68 men remained unscathed. In terms of casualties relative to the number of men engaged, this battle was among the most
murderous of the entire Battle of the Somme.

To end the tour, you will go to Peronne where you will enjoy the visit of the Historic Museum of the Great War, located in a very imposing
fortification that, as the whole town, was badly damaged during WWI.

Then, your private guide will drive you back to your hotel in Paris.
