Museum of the Battle of Fromelles

WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF THE MUSEUM OF THE BATTLE OF FROMELLES

The Museum of the Battle of Fromelles, a new chapter of a story that began there nearly a hundred years ago.

The Battle of Fromelles took place on 19th and 20th July 1916 and opposed British and Australian divisions to a Bavarian division. The shock was terrible, within 24 hours, there were nearly 8,500 victims. Many of the soldiers who died on the battlefield could not be found.

In 2009, a team of archaeologists uncovered the bodies of 250 British and Australian soldiers missing at Fromelles. A serious campaign of identification began, and with each restored identity, it is the story of one soldier that rises to the surface.

Follow the battle, the archaeological research and the history of fallen soldiers through the permanent exhibition. Discover a story that keeps on being written.
