The bronze 'Bullecourt Digger', created by Melbourne sculptor Peter Corlett, stands in the Australian Memorial Park just outside Bullecourt, along the Rue des Australiens and along the side road to Reincourt-les-Cagnicourt. In April and May 1917, the AIF lost 10,000 soldiers, killed or wounded in the fields the digger surveys.

416,809 Australians enlisted voluntarily during the Great War (conscription was never imposed). 61,527 were killed and 156,000 were wounded, gassed or taken prisoner. Valuable research by John Paskulich from Perth, Western Australia has helped establish that a large contingent of men with strong connections to Nottinghamshire served with Australian forces between 1914 and 1918 and that 106 lost their lives. This section commemorates their sacrifice and acknowledges Australia's huge contribution to Britain's First World War victory. David Nunn
