A British cemetery in Allonville

Allonville being very close to the front lines and Villers-Bretonneux, English and Australians soldiers were billeted there.

This is where on May 31, as many as 87 Australians were killed when a barn used as a theatre by the "Smart Set" company, collapsed under German shelling.

It was a real disaster for both companies of 14th batalion.
