In World War 1 the men of Australia and New Zealand earned a reputation for fighting prowess and immortalised the name ANZACS (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) in the ill-fated Gallipoli Campaign. The Australian troops also gained the name 'Diggers' which they took with them to the Western Front where they made a major contribution to the Allied victory in 1918. A specialist tunnelling battalion left Australia in 1916 to bolster aggressive mining activity on the Western Front. This is their story.
