Delville Wood:

Delville Wood is hallowed ground - the resting place of thousands South African troops who gave their lives in the cause of freedom. It also contains the graves of an estimated five thousand British and German soldiers who fought and died in the wood.

The monument to the South African soldiers that died in Delville Wood.

I apologise for the quality of these photographs that were taken late afternoon on the 11th November 2008 as the light was fading and we had only a short time in which to visit the wood.
