Posted by Jean-Yves on Aug 10, 2021

Mametz was within the German lines until 1 July 1916, when it was captured by the 7th Division and Mametz Wood, north-east of the village was taken on the days following 7 July.

Gordon Cemetery was made by men of the 2nd Gordon Highlanders who buried some of their dead of 1 July in what had been a support trench, together with two artillerymen who died 8 July and an unknown soldier. The cemetery contains 102 First World War burials, five of them unidentified. (Source: Commonwealth War Graves Commission)
