Mémorial à la 9ème Division Ecossaise et Point-du-jour Cemetery

Memorial (ATHIES)

Close to the main road which connects Arras to Douai, in the place known as Point-du-Jour, stands a memorial in the shape of a cairn. It was built to honour, in the best Celtic tradition, those men of the 9th Scottish Division who fell on the first day of the Battle of Arras while liberating the village of Athies. A short distance away lies Point-du-Jour Cemetery which is the last resting place of the men of the South African Brigade who belonged to the same division.
