Commemorating the Battle of the Sambre in the Forest of Mormal

We are honoured to be working in partnership with 4thNovember1918, go to their website to find out more!

On the morning of the 4th November 1918 the last major British offensive of the Great War began. 17 British Divisions attacked on a 40 mile front with an objective to break the German Army and force an end to the war. This website is dedicated to the actions in and around the Mormal Forest and the men who fought and fell in the battle, so close to the end of hostilities.

On 4th November 2018 a commemorative event will take place in the Mormal Forest in partnership with the village of Locquignol. We aim to unite as many relatives of the soldiers who took part in the attack as possible, especially those men which lie in the cemeteries around the region.
