On this day, 101 years ago, Australian’s were involved in the Battle of Epehy – a major attack on the Hindenburg Outpost Line - Germany’s last major defensive line on the Western Front. We thank all those brave men for their service. Lest we forget. #TYFYS @DVAAus @DeptDefence https://t.co/wFxOOtiMeY
