Monash’s Infantry

 

In WW1, France the infantry was the key fighting arm, Light Horse, Armour, Artillery and Aircraft were also critical, but present in fewer numbers.

By 1918 the Australian Infantry had evolved from those who landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula in 1915. Their hats had hardened, dress was embellished, and weaponry had evolved. This presentation is by Brad Manera Senior Historian and Curator at the Anzac Memorial, Hyde Park, Sydney explains the significance of the Memorial’s Infantry Buttress Figure, in so doing, every detail of a Great War Australian Infantryman’s kit and weaponry is discussed.

Well worth 52 minutes and 47 seconds of your day.
