You should read Harry Murray's account of this battle in 'Mad Harry', a recently released book. His account appears in the appendix of the book. Murray at this time was in the 13th which attacked with the 14th.

Rule's Jacka's Mobwas recently republished and can be found from many military book dealers on the net. Jacka served with 14/AIF and fought at Bullecourt.

If you ever make it to Bullecourt there is an excellent private museum there; details at:

Plus perhaps,

The History of the Fourteenth Battalion AIF,
Newton Wanlis.
first published Melb 1929.

This one has been reprinted by Burridge in 1987.
I think saw an 'original' for sale last week.

Cheers

Paul
I agree the private museum at Bullecourt is worth the visit.
I visited the museum in 2000 and the owner showed me through. I am pleased to hear it is still open.
I have been to the Somme three times and stayed with Julie Renshaw - Les Galets on a couple of occasions. I am slowly learning the Australian sites on the Western Front.
Regards
Mark
