Mont St Quentin memorial

A colour photo looking towards the memorial. It is a misty dawn/dusk. Autumnal leaves lie on the path. Four stone steps lead up to the plynth which holds the metal statue of the 'digger'.

The Second Australian Memorial is on the Avenue Des Australiens near the Rue D'Allaines intersection and can be seen from the road. The original Memorial, a statue of a digger killing an eagle with his bayonet, was destroyed by the Germans in World War II. In 1971, it was replaced by this figure of a digger in his slouch hat.
