It commemorates 383 officers and men of the New Zealand Division. On top of the the 'butte' (hill) you will find the Memorial of the 5th Australian Division. In Polygon Wood there are still remains of several shelters. Each year on ANZAC Day (25 April), the efforts of the ANZAC soldiers are commemorated during a service called 'Dawn Service'.
