2017 Battle of Bullencourt Fifty Cents
Uncirculated Fifty Cents on card
2017 - 50c Battle of Bullencourt
The Western Front series continues with a tribute to the battles that took place at Passchendaele and Bullecourt. Australian troops of the 4th and 12th Division launched attacks at Bullecourt (then occupied by Germany) in 1917, as part of a wider British effort to break through German lines near Arras in the First World War. Battles on the Western Front continued into mid-1917 when their focus shifted north into Belgium, where the British were planning a major offensive. Known as the Third Battle of Ypres, its purpose was to capture Passchendaele village and advance towards the coastline. These coins commemorate two battles on the äóÖWestern Frontäó» and honour those that fought and gave their lives.
