k714 Welsh dragon memorial

This memorial stands by Mametz wood and commemorates the losses (approx. 4000) of the 38th (Welsh) Division during the hard fighting in this area on the 7th and 10th July 1916 as part of the Somme offensive. The cirrus clouds, exaggerated by the effect of a wide-angle lens, appear to mimic the sweep of the dragon's wings.
