    ... an incredible casualty rate of 69 %. There were 5 Divisions of Australian troops, each with 20,000 men, reinforced more than 20 times. More than 400,000 volunteered to enlist, why they kept volunteering over the period of the war, with little chance of survival, seems beyond comprehension to us today.

    ... have contributed to the world? Our second stop was the Commonwealth Cemetery of Cabernet Rouge. Over 2300 Commonwealth soldiers are buried here. This is where the original grave of the unknown soldier was who is now buried in Ottawa. All that is known for sure about him is that he died at Vimy and that he was Canadian.

A change of wind direction meant that the smoke then billowed back towards the British front line and many of the men were disorientated by it and ran straight into enemy fire.
