We arriived just as the gates opened so the whole place had a peaceful atmosphere which made the whole experience awe inspiring. The lines of gravestones are set on well manicured lawn with not a weed in sight. Take time to visit the chapel where the emblem of each state is set in stained glass. Later some aircadets arrived who... More

The minute you walk into this memorial you know you are somewhere special. It is situated in a lovely location with far reaching views over the countryside. It is, of course, kept immaculately and the chapel and the decorations therein are stunning. There are volunteers around who will tell you the history of this memorial and it leaves you feeling...

The first thing you notice entering the cemetery, is the column with the... More

A peaceful ad reflective place. This cemetery is not mentioned in the major tour books so there are not coach loads of tourists turning up and spending 5 mins photographing everything. One of the best kept secrets of the war effort!!
