Newfoundland were hit hard by WWI. this memorial is respectful and inspiring.

The trenchwork there is a good reminder of what it would have been like during the War.

“Great War remembered”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Probably one of the most comprehensive locations to appreciate the Great War. Museum good. Terrain that our brave ancestors had to endure whilst facing their enemy. Like elsewhere graves maintained in immaculate condition. The Commonwealth War Graves Commission do an excellent job throughout France.

“A real feel of what was really going on in ww1 battle of the somme”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

we visited on a really cold snowy day in April and were met by very friendly Canadian history students.
The kids enjoyed the trenches and the museum, give yourself an hour to really appreciate the experience.
A really thought provoking experience, hard to leave here without shedding a tear and wanting to find out more facts.
You can continue on the poppy trail and visit more sights and memorials.
We spent a whole day and it didn't cost a penny, just purchased souvenirs, took lots of photos and felt blessed to have my sons returning home with me.
