Mametz Welsh Memorial.
The battle of Mametz Wood - The 38th (Welsh) Division paved
the way for control of the woodland - nearly a mile wide
and more than a mile deep - in northern France. Its capture
was of key importance in the Battle of the Somme where Allied
forces would fight the Germans on a 15-mile front for five
months. During a bloody five-day battle 3,993 Welsh soldiers
were killed, missing or injured, putting their division
out of action for almost a year.
