A battle in WW1 19th July 1916.
In 2009 – mass graves began to be exhumed, remains being identified and laid to rest with honour: it brings to the fore once again a story of the worst 24 hours in Australian history, july 19th 1916.
5,533 Australian casualties in one night and with no ground taken.
in no mans land !
from mass graves
mud barbed wire
piteous writhing mates
blinkers of youth
lure of adventure
an emotional cry
will you not fight for land your fathers died for !
and wars roll on
deafened with enterprise
now i ask how can cycles have an end
Colleen Keating from A Call to Listen
