Beaumont-Hamel and Newfoundland Memorial Park

We visited the Newfoundland Memorial Park of Beaumont Hamel. It is a famous site of the battle of the Somme. It was one of the fights the most murderous of World War I. On July 1st, 1916, at 9 am, more than 800 men of the  Royal Newfoundland Regiment , ron out of their trenches, but were quickely taken under the fire by the German machine guns. A half an hour later, there were no more than 68 soldiers.
