Artist's Description

Thiepval ridge was an objective on the first day of the Somme offensive of July 1916. It was not taken until the end of September, a gain of several hundred metres. Losses on both sides were appalling – for instance, on the first day alone losses were 5,104 in the Ulster Division and 3,949 in the 32nd Division. After the war they crowned the ridge with the memorial to the Somme Missing. There are 72,091 names inscribed on it’s walls.

Remember. These are just the Missing.
