Pozieres is a small village in the Somme valley in France and endured some of the most bitter and costly fighting for Australian troops in 1916. Pozieres was also the place of untold losses in animal life: “It is estimated that over 8,000,000 perished or were wounded in the great war, however this figure is low as records from Asian countries and the fledgling Soviet Union were either non-existent or restricted” Extract from the book, Animals At War – Nigel Allsopp. Your support in buying a paver will enable the establishment of a permanent animal memorial on the grounds of the Australian memorial currently being erected in Pozieres, FRANCE. The establishment of an animal memorial at the Pozieres Memorial site has only been made possible through the support of www.pozieresremembered.com.au Please show your support.  For a donation of $50 your family’s name will be forever displayed in the War Animal Memorial and Garden at Pozieres, FRANCE.
