Trones Wood Monument

Historical Information (Source: Wikipedia)

On 14 July, during the opening of the third stage of the Somme Offensive, 18th Division secured the wood from the Germans.  It fell to the German Army during the great Spring offensive of March 1918 and was once more retaken by 18th Division on 27 August 1918.


The memorial to 18th Division was placed in the years before the wood was re-grown.
