5 route Ginchy
Your host recommends
Here only the courage of soldiers is celebrated. The site lends itself to quiet contemplation and the memory of these soldiers. Come and pay tribute to all the South Africans who have died fighting in different wars by visiting our museum.
This is a tribute to brotherhood! Come and celebrate the courage of South African soldiers who defended Delville wood in 1916. Of the 3,153 brothers-in arms who came here from the antipodes, only 780 were alive and unwounded after the battle of "Devil's wood". In the museum comradeship is honoured, in the grounds you can reflect on friendship between men and peoples. If it's raining, get the ponchos out and tuck your elbows in! ;-)
for a romantic break
Longueval... this major symbol of South African military history is now a place of peace and tranquillity. A wide avenue of oak trees leads from the entrance to the memorial, perfect for quiet contemplation. Continue to the museum dedicated to the memory of all South Africans killed in combat throughout the 20th century. That's where you can meet the mascot, Nancy! Finish up with a walk in Delville Wood where you still see the only remaining witness to 1916 - a majestic Hornbeam.
About this equipment
The belfry at Abbeville is one of the oldest in France, its construction beginning in 1209. It symbolised civil power and the independence of the town in the face of seignorial power.
