Point 110 New Military Cemetery lies just behind what was the front line and contains the graves of David Thomas, M.S. Richardson and David Pritchard. These three men were friends of Siegfried Sassoon and Robert Graves. They were killed on the same night, the 18th/19th March 1916. This series of deaths affected Sassoon and Graves deeply, their grief dealt with at length later in their writing. Their graves can be found at Point 110 New Military Cemetery, Fricourt, France.
