This is one of the best memorials I have ever seen. This is unique, cool, and different. It is found at the end of a long, winding country road, but worth your time to check it out if you are in the area.

4000 killed or wounded in a few days to capture Mamtez Wood. Stand by the monument and reflect and then walk between the fields down to the woods. One can still see the shell holes even though the site is now over grown. A sad...More

The monument stands above the road and the red dragon on its top is superb both as a tribute and as a symbol of resistance. Mametz Wood is the wooded areas around this spot and a place of huge savagery and loss of life. This...More

Makes the battlefield obvious, the view from the dragon is more or less the last view for many allied soldiers. go on to "storm" the wood (the path directly opposite) and come across many remembrances by other visitors. Wander the woods and you may see...More
