Yes it's a dogs' grave but there is a bigger story here. The regimental mascot of the incredibly brave fighting men from New Zealand, who were stationed here before going off to the horrors of France.

My husband and I were walking on The Chase and saw the sign pointing the way to Freda's grave - intrigued we went to find it - having no idea who Freda was off we went - without saying more ....... Go and find it!

This has to be a gem for the Chase. Hard not to be moved. Combined a deer siting, ice cream and tears.

Not a lot to say about this area, this is a monument to Polish in the 2nd WW. The walks around the area are nice with a good variety of wildlife in the local area. Very close to here is the 2nd WW cemetary and also the German Cemetary which is well worth the visit.

I've been visiting this area for years with family, some great walks and beautiful views of the chase. The memorial is a modest tribute to the military history of the site. It's perfectly sited between the ancient old woodland and the newer pines allowing for many different walks from the memorial. Roads to the carpark currently have some serious pot... More

Really nice to visit, just don't use the link for location from trip advisor you will be miles away. Lovely walk on a summers day.

We've been hiking around Cannock Chase Forest for a few months now and this is the first time Paul and I had been to Freda's grave site. We are pleasantly surprised to see the surrounding trees with blossoming flowers leading to the grave of 1st World War NZ Great Dane Mascot. It was adorned with poppies and heartfelt messages.
