New Zealand Battlefield Memorial: Mesen

The New Zealand battlefield memorial (similar in design to the New Zealand Memorial at ‘s Graventafel) is located at the New Zealand Memorial Park (on Nieuwzeelanderstraat). This memorial honours the soldiers of the New Zealand Division that fought in the Battle of Messines from 7 to 14 June 1917. The memorial park, which houses the remains of two German pill-boxes, overlooks the area from where the New Zealanders attacked on 7 June 1917.
