  • So I was glad to see the reality, feel the sacrifice, imagine the bravery, see the proximity to Ypres.  more »
  • On this day of November 2018, very hard to imagine the lives of these poor guys, 100 years earlier, in the cold, fog, moisture, mud, while today the forest once devastated, has again become a forest, that the fields are ploured, without barbed wire or shell holes... Always moving to read the names and ages of these Australians, New Zealanders who came from the Antipodes die here in Flanders or France!

  • Very poignant memorial at Polygon wood and the associated ANZAC monument. Built on a huge Butte at the end of an old rifle range, the site was used as a hospital and first aid station during world war 1. A walk through the woods reveals multiple German bunkers and reinforcements and gives an insight into the challenge the allied troops faced. Polygon wood cemetery to the side also well worth a visit. Ample off road parking available at the attached car park.
  • So much history very peaceful here
