About the memorial: From the Woodland Trust web site 'The Sandringham Estate confirmed Her Majesty Queen Mary planted a Verdun oak in the grounds on 28 January 1920. According to Estate records it was grown along with several others, from acorns collected from Verdun in 1917. It is possible that these trees had particular significance to the Royal Family as the Lost Battalion in Gallipoli included a company of soldiers formed of enlisted staff from the Sandringham Estate who vanished in the middle of their very first battle in August 1915'. https://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/support-us/support-an-appeal/centenary-woods/stories-and-memories/verdun-oaks/
