Quantity

Pozieres, a small village in the Somme valley in France, was the scene of bitter and costly fighting for the 1st, 2nd and 4th Australian Divisions of the A.I.F. On 23 July 1916 the village was captured by the 1st Division and despite almost continuous artillery bombardments and repeated German counter-attacks, the 1st clung to its gains. By the time it was relieved by 2nd Division on 27 July it had suffered 5,285 casualties. The 2nd Division mounted two further attacks to capture the heights beyond the village. The first assault on 29 July was a costly failure. On 2 August it finally took the new ground but endured heavy retaliatory bombardments until being relived by the 4th Division on 6 August. The 2nd suffered 6,848 casualties. The 4th steadfastly held the position. On 7 August the Germans launched a final attack to retake Pozieres but were soundly beaten. The 4th suffered almost 1,500 casualties. Presented in an attractive leatherette box, it includes a certificate of authenticity and Sands of Gallipoli presentation. Only 1,000 units will be released.
