Dad was a desert Rat, so hearing about the memorial meant we had to visit. What a unique memorial to brave men.

Interesting and informative place to visit, lots of parking, great walks and dog friendly and also a caravan site close by.

Learn the local history of the Rats and enjoy a walk around their training camp, in Thetford Forest.

There is an old mounted tank providing the main focal point for remembrance. The 2 or so kilometre walk around the old camp and neighbouring forest is very pleasant but there is not a lot to see. The interpretive boards provide information that was helpful.
