Commemoration of 19 Australian soldiers
On 15 April, Allonville will honour the 19 Australian soldiers and officers killed on 31 May 1918 in the barns of the castle.
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission is marking the end of the First World War Centenary with 120 personal stories of those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the last months of the war. One remarkable story is that of Risaldar Badlu Singh, from Dhakla Haryana, who died on 23 September 1918. The CWGC commemorates nearly 74,000 members of Indian forces who served in the First World War.
