6. a. France   July 19-20 1916, Battle of Fromelles or Battle of Fleurbaix The Battle of Fromelles, sometimes known as the Action at Fromelles or the Battle of Fleurbaix, occurred in France on July 19-20, 1916, during World War I. It was fought as the Battle of the Somme raged, about 80 kilometres (50 miles) to the south. The Battle of Fromelles is significant as it was the first occasion on which the First Australian Imperial Force (AIF) saw action on the Western Front. Because 5,533 Australian soldiers were killed, wounded or taken prisoner in an operation which was a total failure, the Australian War Memorial describes the battle as "the worst 24 hours in Australia's entire history." It was a decisive victory for Germany, and the Australian and British losses were sustained without the Allies gaining any ground. The action, just north of the German-occupied village of Fromelles, 16 km (10 miles) from the city of Lille, was intended partly as a diversion to the larger battle, and also at taking a German salient.

8. Nowhere man Jeremy Hilary Boob Ph.D. is a fictional character in the animated movie Yellow Submarine (1968). He was voiced by Dick Emery. The Beatles, on their way to save Pepperland from the Blue Meanies, encounter Jeremy Hillary Boob, Ph.D., a strange, gopher-like little brown-furred man with a blue face, pink ears and a fluffy, rabbit-like tail. Jeremy lives in the Sea of Nothing (aka Nowhere), speaks in rhyme and describes himself as an "eminent physicist, polyglot classicist, prize-winning botanist, hard-biting satirist, talented pianist, good dentist too". He also owns a mysterious purple and green object that can turn from a typewriter to a tree, to an easel, a piano, and numerous other things. He thinks he can speak English, but isn't sure. The band realizes one of their songs sums Jeremy up well and they sing "Nowhere Man" about him as they cavort with his magic in his nowhere land. However as they prepare to leave, Jeremy realizes how literally empty and lonely his life is and becomes inconsolable. Concerned at seeing the friendly person so upset, the compassionate Ringo offers to take him Somewhere and he gratefully accepts.
