2011 Hogarths on the move again - to places afar travel blog

We head out in the morning to do a trial run for the dawn service. We don’t have a good city map so it is a case of trial and error to find the best road out of Amiens to Villers-Bretonneux.

That done we visit the memorial itself and after lunch the permanent Museum set up in the Villers-Bretonneux Primary School. The hall was actually built by Australians using Australian timbers etc. This whole village has so many connections to Australia and looking into the classrooms the kids obviously do many projects on various aspects of Australia.

It is late afternoon when we finally leave and wind our way through the countryside taking the long way back to Amiens.

A quick visit to the cathedral before it closes and then we have a relatively early tea. Whilst eating we were graced with the presence of Kevin 07. Guess he will be at the service tomorrow.

Home to get our stuff sorted – we will have to leave before 4 in the morning.
