  • A fitting tribute to a brave set of people from all nationalities
  • remembering those who died in the last 2 wars brought a different perspective to our trip. Worth the visit,This is a really lovely spot to reflect on lives lost in war. It's interesting to see all the nationalities, ranks, religions all mingled together in this beautifully maintained cemetery. It doesn't take long to visit and is definitely worth a look.
