Ron Hayward: A remote paddock in WA & Leane’s Trench
Posted on: Mon 30 Mar 2020
Located over 400km north of Perth, and about 30km east of Geraldton, sits an incredible testament to the Aussies of the 11th Battalion who took a Turkish trench in Gallipoli after brutal hand to hand combat. Ron Hayward tells us about the trench and its connection to Australia’s most famous military family, the Leane family of South Australia. This should be a must on all travellers’ itineraries.
