This is the 4th episode in our Bullecourt series.

"With artillery support we can keep the position till the cows come home."

So wrote CAPT Harry Murray, VC, OC A Coy after the 4th and 12th Brigades had fought their way into the Siegfried Line - they didn't get it and were forced to conduct an extremely difficult withdrawal under heavy machine gun fire.

This is part of our 150th Anniversary of the Royal Australian Artillery series.
