Just curious - watching the Anzac Day dawn service from the Australian War Memorial Cemetary in Villers-Bretonneux I wonder that the guard have no weapons.
On April 24th 1918 the Germans had taken Villers-Bretonneux and were driving the allies back.
Something else to remember about the battle at Villers-Bretonneux is that it was a victory, the ANZACs and the French drove back the Germans and won the battle, the allies eventually winning the war.
The battle won, the ANZACs realised it was three years to the day that the landing at Gallipoli took place.
The Last Post and Reveille were very well played at this service.
