Very impressive and beautiful war cemetery. The portraying of the insignia of the regiments the fallen served in on the stones really adds a personalised aspect. It is also fascinating how there's multiple and some unusual nationalities buried here. Although, it was mentioned there were some 400 Germans buried at this cemetery but I was not able to find any of their graves.
There is nothing else to say that will show my true gratitude for the brave men of the United Kingdom and its commonwealth who sacrificed themselves for the sake of humanity's freedom. No greater love than that! The cemetery is a testament of courage displayed for the liberation of Europe. I can really tell the local people's treatment of the cemetery with care. A remarkable and breathtaking and very emotioanal ground to walk on. You feel the spirit of the men buried there as if they want their stories remain alive. Lest we forget!
