Summary
This is the story of a little part of Australia that lies in the middle of France. This small French village is the largest Australian war memorial in Europe, with the names of fifty-eight thousand Anzac soldiers that died in World War I and here, every Anzac Day, is a Public Holiday. This village is Villiers-Bretonneux and its filled with filled with little Australian stories known and unknown powerful and poignant. There's Digger, the little French orphan who was adopted by an airman then smuggled to England in an oat sack, then in a wicker basket to Australia.How a Victorian Aussie boy worked hard to raise two pennies to help rebuild a destroyed school in Villers-Brettoneux, France. The glorious day we stole the only A7V Sturmpanzerwagen tank in the world from under the Germans noses and took it home as a trophy. Why Villers-Bretonneux is a strange name for an Aboriginal burial ground. And how the Unknown Soldier, one of those eleven thousand Anzacs known only to God came home to Australia. These six poignant stories from WWI are all intimate parts of an amazing love story between Australia and France that all began 100 years ago. Six reasons why the locals say, Noublions Jamais L'Australie
