15749 Diorama: The Battle For Pozieres, 1916

Australian War Memorial, Canberra ACT

I'm not sure which aspect of the battle this diorama represents but from the shell explosions painted on the background and the denuded, barren ground I suspect that it's the bombardment which ran from 24 to 26 July, described on the Department Of Veterans' Affairs web site:

For three days, 24 to 26 July 1916, the Germans relentlessly bombarded Pozières. The aim of this concentrated shelling was not simply to prepare for a counter–attack but to inflict as much damage and loss on the Australians as possible.
