Visited Delville Wood War memorial on a beautiful day. Magnificent memorial to all South Africans killed on the Somme. On of the highlights of my trip to the Somme. Situated in beautiful surroundings. Great visitor centre which is admission free. Well worth a visit.

The monument is very well laid out with walks through the woods and signs showing the trench lines. The museum is excellent well laid out and is something different to the normal museums.

A very informative museum opened in the last couple of years situated opposite to the cemetery. No charge but donations gratefully received. Allow plenty of time to view all the exhibits.
