LONGUEVAL - SOMME - FRANCE
Welcome to the official website of Delville Wood.
Delville Wood, as the supreme symbol of South Africa's Sacrifice and Courage, occupied an eminent place in the country's military history. In July 1916, the 1st South African Infantry Brigade carried out one of the highest feat of arms of the Great War.
