Our pal WebUrbanist (neat new blog layout!) has a really neat post about the 10 amazing monuments commemorating war heroes. This one to the left is the 38th (Welsh) Division Memorial, depicting the defiant Red Dragon of Wales:
It was the 38th (Welsh) Infantry Division that was charged with taking Mametz Wood during the bloody Battle of the Somme on July 7, 1916. After five long days they managed to clear the woods of Germans, which cost them 4,000 deaths and casualties. This is how the 38th (Welsh) Division Memorial erected, with a defiant dragon (the Red Dragon of Wales was the division’s insignia) standing on a 10 feet plinth, facing the woods with the regimental cap badge of the South Wales Borderers carved on one side of the base.
