The Well of Sacrifice, Nomansland, New Forest
The Well of Sacrifice, Nomansland, New Forest
On the village green, close to the cricket pitch, is this unusual memorial to the local men who served in the 1914-18 and 1939-45 conflicts. The structure is apparently on top of a well. It is curious that the name of the village, Nomansland, is the same as that famously used in the trench warfare of the 1914-18 war.
