Delville Wood commemorated

From: 14 June 2024


July 2024 marks the 108th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme, one of the bloodiest battles in human history.
Between 1 July and 18 November 1916, more than one million men were wounded or killed on the banks of the river Somme in France. Among the soldiers killed and injured were more than 
2 400 South Africans who fought for control over a small piece of land in the northeast of France, called Delville Wood.
On Sunday, 14 July, at 11:00, a special service will be held at the MOTHs’ Turbi Hills Shellhole to commemorate Delville Wood and to pay tribute to the South African soldiers who lost their lives during this war.
