Allies Day 12 Amiens Rest Day July 2

Today was a rest and wash day.

However, the key highlight was easily our visit to the John Monash Memorial Centre, just outside of villas Britain now. It is a fantastic memorial to Australian soldiers on the Western front and includes an interactive visitor centre, which is extremely well, put together and very powerful.

  1. Hi Mitch, Such stunning things to see and such a rich history to explore. I have to say you make history come to life and interesting – not like the history when I went to school! We really love checking out your blog and will keep checking in to see what you are up to. It looks like a really great way to explore -on a bike. Stay safe and well and keep enjoying yourself. Jane and Mal
