Pozieres (7): too many everywhere we go

2nd Div. Memorial, Pozieres Ridge', 393091-small

Image depicting a memorial cross erected to the 2nd Division at Pozieres Ridge, France. The image is undated but it likely to have been taken sometime after August 1916 when the battle of Pozieres Ridge took place. 4,000 Australians were lost during the five-week campaign. https://collections.museumvictoria.com.au/items/1707440

too many
crosses

we leave them
everywhere

oh
do you know
where
the australians
have been

yes yes

it is a cemetery
now

yes yes

that
is where
they’ve been

but
what are we
to do

we leave
a part of us

the best part
of us

too many
crosses
everywhere we go

but that
is where
we’ve been
