Short interview with M. Jean Letaille who collected and salvaged war items from the fields around the French village of Bullecourt where harsh fighting took place from April to May, 1917. From the 1980s M. Letaille and his wife, Denise displayed their collection in their barn. Over the years, the collection grew and became popular with many visitors touring the First World War battlefields. Jean sadly died just before a architecturally designed and renovated version of his museum was completed and opened in 2012. His wife, Denise had passed away a few years earlier. The new Bullecourt 1917 - Musée Jean et Denise Letaille, part of the Australian Remembrance Trail, was jointly funded by the Australian Government and local and regional French authorities.
M. Letaille was awarded an Honorary Medal in the Order of Australia (OAM) by the Australian Government for his work commemorating the Australian sacrifice at the two battles of Bullecourt in 1917.
