Sergeant Vick of Kensington

Fromelles, November 1916.  Looking from the north-east corner of the Sugar Loaf towards the starting point for the 15 Brigade attack. AWM E04030.
Cpl Albert Vick of Barnett St, Kensington survived the battle of Fromelles in 1916.  The attrition at this battle probably led to his promotion to sergeant not long afterwards.  Within a few months Albert and the 29th Battalion went into action at Trones Wood.  Rod Martin relates Sgt Vick's story.
