Private Bert Harvey and the Villers-Bretonneux Memorial
When Bert Harvey of Ascot Vale went missing during the battle of Pozieres, no trace was found of his body. His name, along with 11,000 other Australians with no known graves, is recorded on the Australian Memorial at Villers-Bretonneux. The above view is taken by Greg Manderson from the Memorial tower. Greg is a relative of Bert's.
Read Rod Martin's account of Bert's last days near Moquet Farm here, illustrated with several of Greg Manderson's photos.
I have created a commemorative online database of the WW1 volunteers of Essendon and Flemington in Victoria, with a blog to support the website: see link below.
I have other websites and blogs which follow other interests.
