On 12 October 1917, the New Zealand Division advanced to take the Bellevue spur. The result was devastating: 2.700 casualties. Including 846 dead, in less  than four hours, for a terrain gain of less than 400 metres. That day has been remembered ever since as the most tragic in the modern history of New Zealand. Exactly one hundred years later, special ceremonies, involving youngsters, at Tyne Cot Cemetery and at 's Graventafel will remind us of this sacrifice.
