Both divisions took part in the ill-fated attack on Fromelles in July which cost the Australians 5,500 casualties and the 61st Division 1,550; it also earned the division the soubriquet “61st and worst” from the Australians. 2/5th Glosters were in reserve and it was they who had the depressing task of bringing in and burying the dead, which took three or four days, nor did the Germans fire a shot on stretcher bearers and others wandering about No Man’s Land in broad daylight.
