The white rocks at the White Rocks Reserve, where the men who attacked the train hid, Broken Hill, New South Wales Australia
The white rocks at the White Rocks Reserve, where the men who attacked the train hid, Broken Hill, New South Wales Australia. You can see why the attackers used this as a refuge. The white rocks form a natural battlement giving good protection. But they were never going to win against the superior numbers of the police and Volunteer Rifles. This tragic event was a small reminder of the much greater tragedies being fought at Gallipoli and in Europe. In the left middle ground you can see a replica of an ice cream cart owned by one of the men. June 2016.
