The Unknown Soldiers Of Thiepval

Thiepval was one of the fortress villages that was held by the Germans on the Somme front in 1916. After the War ended, Thiepval was chosen as the location for the Memorial to the Missing to commemorate those who died in the Somme sector before the 20th of March 1918 and have no known grave. This is the largest and most imposing of the Memorials to the Missing, and visiting here is a moving and sobering experience.
