Messines (Mesen) Belgium - Pillboxes at the New Zealand Memorial

This panorama was taken from the top of one of the two pillboxes captured by the New Zealand Division on 7th June 1917. The New Zealand Memorial can be seen in this park. The buildings in the distance belong to La Petite Douve Farm, which is built on the known location of a large unexploded mine.
