The Serre Memorial

Tuesday, November 20th, 2007

I mentioned the Serre memorial to the chaps NML found in 2003. It was made by Keith Maddison from the group and stands by the road in front of the site of the German position known as the Heidenkopf. It commemorates Jakob Hones and Albert Thielecke, both killed in 1915 during the Battle of Hebuterne and an unknown man from the King’s Own killed on 1st July 1916.

This picture shows the memorial on the day of its unveiling.
