The Jean and Denise Letaille Museum - Bullecourt 1917 tells the story of thousands of soldiers who came to defend the Arras sector.

It was created by Jean and Denise Letaille, a farmer couple, from objects that witnessed the fighting of the Great War, found in the fields around Bullecourt.

Weapons, but also razors, combs and other personal effects from Australia, Germany and the United Kingdom, were found on the former front line alongside the men to whom they belonged, who fell during the two battles of Bullecourt in April and May 1917.

A tribute to the Australian and British soldiers of the Artois trenches, indeed, 10,771 Australian soldiers and 7,000 British soldiers were killed or wounded during these battles intended to break through the German front line.

These relics shed light on one of the most deadly but often overlooked episodes of the Great War, but above all they tell the story of the "Diggers", these valiant soldiers from the other side of the world.
