Australian troops counter-attack at Amiens, WW1 Featured Print

Australian troops counter-attack at Amiens, WW1

Australian troops hold the line at Villers Bretonneux nine miles east of Amiens during a German attack during the Battle of Amiens in April 1918. The image was an accurate impression by Sphere special artist, Fortunino Matania, having been reconstructed with the help of eyewitness accounts and official material. In the foreground, an infantryman, his rifle slung over his shoulder, takes over a Lewis Gun whose crew had been put out of action. Behind that can be seen another soldier hitting a German with his tin helmet (having already strangled another with his bare hands) while a third German attempts to flee down a railway cutting but is stopped by the gun fire of the Australian officer's batman. Date: 1919

Senegal - Rebellion at Thies - Sarithia Dieye captured

The circumstances surrounding the outbreak of the Thies rebellion remain obscure. An article at the time said that the rebellion began after the sentencing to 15 days in jail of Diery Fall. He did not accept the charge and with associates, attacked and killed a young colonial officer, Monsieur Chautemps. Two days later, Diery Fall was caught and killed by his own brother who cut off his head and forearm to bring the Pouvergue administrator who had them exposed publicly as a warning and intimidation. Another assassin, Sarithia Dieye was caught a few days later at St. Mary of Bathurst in Gambia. All that remains of this dramatic episode are these remarkable postcards. After being caught on camera, Canar Fall (head of Western Baol province), his brother and "courtiers" were all deported to Guyana. This photograph shows Sarithia Dieye having been captured and Meissa Lahobe, who aided the arrest of Dieye at Bathurst. Date: 1904
