This statue of a soldier of the Black Watch, stands at the southwestern edge of Polygon Wood. The site was named after the elite Scottish unit, “Black Watch Corner”, during WWI.

Inaugurated in 2014, the memorial commemorates the Black Watch Regiment, which played an important part in halting the German advance towards Ypres in November 1914.
