How it works


Delville Wood-July 1916.

Delville Wood was the bloodiest battle ever fought by South Africans. Through this action other nations learnt to respect the fighting qualities of the man from the fledgling Union of South Africa.

Erstwhile foes, Boer and Briton, fought shoulder to shoulder against the pride of the German army. They withstood waves of attcking infantrymen, were subjected to savage artillery fire which reached a crescendo of seven shells a second, pulverising the wood and obliterating the defences, then fought hand-to-hand until overrun, threw back the enemy and fought on with unbelievable tenacity.
