"The diorama depicts a scene during the 6th Brigade's attack on Mont St Quentin on 1 September 1918. It represents a tactically difficult situation as well as the daring of the Australian soldiers. The sculptor, C. Web Gilbert, said when making the diorama, "I want to satisfy not only the art critic and the military enthusiast, but the Dinkum Digger critic." Gilbert chose Mont St Quentin first "not only because it lends itself best to picturesque treatment, but because it typifies and crowns the great sweeping victories of the A.I.F. that preceded the smashing of the Hindenburg line and then the Armistice"."

Yep, the storming of Mont St Quentin, quite a feat of arms, amazing, given the circumstances.
