Remember Me: The Lost Diggers of Vignacourt

During World War I, the small French village of Vignacourt was always behind the front lines. During the Great War, the tiny community was a staging point, casualty clearing station and recreation area for troops of all nationalities moving up to and then back from the battlefields on the Somme. This remarkable website collects portrait postcards documenting those times, donated to the Australian War Memorial by Kerry Stokes AC. The collection includes over 800 glass-plate negatives depicting Australians in a variety of settings. By clicking on the collection area, visitors can browse by military unit or subject. Finally, visitors can add their own comments and observations to each photograph.
