38. La Groise

First British Division played an important role during the war at La Groise.

The Chapeau-Rouge crossroads at La Groise was the place chosen by the British authorities to erect, after the First World War, a memorial honouring the actions of the 1st British Division during the war. Officially unveiled by Marshal Foch on the 7th of April 1927, it was the work of the sculptor Richard Reginald Goulden and shows a Winged Victory with a panther and cherubims.
