Anzac Walk, Belgium - 2. The Wheatfield
This location was one of the starting points for the Battle of Broodseinde Ridge at Zonnebeke, Belgium. The Australians advanced across the flat wheatfield (past the car). There were many starting points as the battle involved the Australian 1st, 2nd and 3rd Divisions, with the New Zealanders on their left. The ANZAC front spread across about 4 km.
