Die Slag van Delvillebos, 15–21 Julie 1916:
Met die uitbreek van die Eerste Wêreldoorlog in 1914 is Suid-Afrikaanse troepe na verskeie plekke in die wêreld gestuur. As deel van die Slag van die Somme in Frankryk het die Eerste Suid-Afrikaanse Infanteriebrigade deel van die Skotse 9de Divisie geword. Dit sou hulle taak word om Delvillebos en die aangrensende dorpie, Longueval, in te neem en te behou.  Van 15 tot 21 Julie 1916 sou die Suid-Afrikaners in ’n verbete stryd met die Duitsers om die bos gewikkel wees. Van die 3 153  Suid-Afrikaners wat die bos sou binnegaan, het slegs sowat 780 na ses dae en vyf nagte oorleef. Ons eer onbekende troepe soos die Afrikaanse “Skot” Willem Groenewald wat in verre Frankryk begrawe lê. Baie van die gevallenes het geen graf nie. Die Slag van Delvillebos sou veel bydra tot die bou van ’n Suid-Afrikaanse nasie.
