Demuin Canadian Cavalry Brigade Monument

The monument is situated next to a new highway underpass at the corner of D23 and D934, north of Moreuil.


There is paved access and parking available at the site. From the site you can see Rifle Wood and the corner of Moreuil Wood where Lt Gordon Flowerdew, VC led his squadron into the advancing German lines. Much of the centre of Moreuil wood has been cleared and is now farmland. Rifle Wood is nearly untouched and contains a large amount of the debris of the battle. Plaques on the surfaces of the monument describe the Canadian Cavalry Brigade, the Battles of March 30 and April 1 1918, and the actions of Lt Flowerdew and his squadron.
