2016 marked the centenary of the Battle of Mametz Wood, one of the most significant and bloody battles fought by Welsh soldiers during the First World War.
Now embedded in the Welsh national identity, this battle has come to represent the bravery and sacrifice of Welsh troops in World War One. This heroic ideal was captured by the artist Christopher Williams in his painting The Welsh Division at the Battle of Mametz Wood, commissioned by David Lloyd George in 1916.
