THIEPVAL MEMORIAL &

THIEPVAL MEMORIAL & ANGLO-FRENCH CEMETERY The Thiepval Memorial is the largest CWGC memorial to the missing in the world. The Battle of the Somme in 1916 was one of the bloodiest battles in human history. In 141 days of fierce fighting over one million men on both sides were wounded or killed. Today the Thiepval Memorial stands as a testament to those lives cut short and is a must-see for everyone visiting the Somme. IWM Q4248
