  • If ever the SAS needed a memorial; this would be it. Here at this location the Desert Rats aka the SAS trained for the D-Day Invasion. The woods behind this memorial is the very place they practised for the big push. With out a doubt this memorial is an awesome memorial to our brave personnell who overcame extremes to help bring victory in europe. My personal score is 10/10 and I award this memorial site my Gold Star for Excellence.
