Guedecourt Newfoundland Caribou

I often feel that this poor creature is lost amidst the hubub of the 'popular' sites, especially Newfoundland Park.

What do you think?

Of all the Caribou's on the Western Front, the one that seems most isolated is ironically the one in the most built-up area, that of Kortrijk. Situated on a busy cross roads it seems to lack the poignancy of Beaumont Hamel, Guedecourt, Masnieres, Monchy-le-Preux. Also the sign is very tatty. Canada please take note.

My point of view when I went there :

The place, the garden is too small for the Caribou.

It is a pity there is not more "free" ground around it. :(

Yes a very isolated place and that is the good side of the location. :)

Not quite that I totally agreePeter; the Caribou at Monchy is undoubtedly poignant, but its asthetic and emotional impact is surely lessened by its current position

Martin,

I'm in league with Marco and Malcolm.
