  • Deville wood is an amazing memorial to the South African soldiers who died in World War 1 and walking around the wood is very moving  more »
  • If there was a list of must-see places to visit related to the Great War, this would be one of them. A great memorial to the fallers of South Africa and who saw theself in a war that touched them nothing but a colony of the British Empire. Excellent construction and all its surroundings to remember yours and that memory do not forget why and where they fell.

  • Another beautiful memorial in the Somme. This one has many artistic depictions of the battle; sometimes hard-hitting. Of particular interest to us on our visit was outside: the proximity of the enemy trenches and the last hornbeam, a sapling from which is growing in our establishment at home.
  • A wonderful and moving memorial to RSA troops. Difficult to imagine the carnage that took place here but looking into the forest you will see signs of the conflict. Be sure not to miss the only tree to survive.
