So I trained at LB’s gym this morning and the conversation around us went something like this.
Oh….did you feel the earthquake last night the terror…..It rattled my china ponies…I thought I was going to lose them all…..and then to come in here and its so cold, I dont know if I can stand 10 minutes on the treadmill wobbling my fat arse watching the tv…..the horror of it all…..
This is hard you soft cocks
On August 8th, the Anzacs and British II Corps began fighting their way north towards the Mouquet Farm, which the Germans had heavily fortified. The Anzacs inched forward between August 12th and September 13th, but the Germans held them back. They were relieved by the Canadian Corps, which was able to capture Mouquet Farm on the 16th, but were pushed out again by the Germans. They were finally able to establish a solid position on Mouquet Farm on the 26th of September and forced the German garrison to surrender the next day. The victory was not without its sacrifices, as the Australian divisions suffered 23,000 casualties while assaulting Pozieres and Mouquet Farm. The New Zealand division suffered 8,000 casualties, which amounted to nearly one percent of New Zealand’s total population.
