Longueval is a commune in the Somme department in Hauts-de-France in northern France.GeographyLongueval is located 38km northwest of Amiens on the D919 road, at the junction with the D8. Longueval is found in the north-east of the département, almost equidistant to the surrounding towns of Péronne (to the east), Albert (west) and Bapaume (north).HistoryThe village was virtually destroyed during World War I.Caterpillar Valley CemeteryA cemetery in the care of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission has 214 New Zealand graves from the Battle of the Somme among the over 5000 graves, of which 3800 were unidentified. There is a Memorial to the Missing from New Zealand, recording the names of 1272 men lost in 1916 (eight have since been identifierd and buried, including the All Black Bobby Black). The body for the New Zealand Tomb of the Unknown Warrior was taken from here. South of Longueval is the Longueval Road Cemetery. In the centre of the village is the Pipers' Memorial, built to commemorate bagpipers who fought in the First World War. Longueval was chosen because it was retaken by the 9th (Scottish) Division in July 1916. To the east of the village is the South African War Memorial Delville Wood.
