Description

Join author Margie Koukourou when she presents her remarkable true story ‘Never Forget Australia: A Return to the Western Front. A Memoir’.

Margie is a retired nurse who worked at the Repatriation General Hospital at Daw Park, S.A. with many World War 1 and World War 2 patients, veterans of these wars. She accompanied 13 veterans and 7 war widows to the Western Front in northern France, visiting with formal engagements at places where the diggers were billeted and fought in battles from 1916 to 1918. She kept a diary of this time.

The book describes the trip through the experiences of the veterans as they travelled to Paris, Villers Bretonneux, Pozieres, Arras, Fromelles, Ypres, Bullecourt, Mont St Quentin, Peronne, Tincourt Boucly and back to Paris.
