Have some heart for the Sappers of Amiens

The Australian engineers (the Sappers) on 8 August 1918 in Amiens France, demonstrated incredible courage under fire, determination that you couldn't cut with a chain saw and initiative that was jaw-dropping. This was World war One.  On that one day, they helped to break through enemy positions and to cap it off, literally "ripped off" an enormous railway gun from under the noses of the enemy. They received a huge number of decorations plus three Citations for the Vitoria Cross. But they have never been recognised with a monument - anywhere - in the world.  Our team, mainly of veterans from the Vietnam War want to put that right. We will build a Bailey Bridge for them at Amiens in France and dedicated it on 8 August 2020. But we need a hand to pay for it.  Please help us fund this monument. It will be there forever and lovingly cared for by the French people of Amiens City. You will be able to visit and touch the bridge when you visit France.

Do you have a couple of "bob" for an old digger? Donate it please.
Goodonyamate!
