its worth a view, a memorial away from the homeland, still paying a homage to those who sacrificed their lives on the battlefield, a tribute worth visiting..

This place is on the same road that leads to Promenade. Historic point of view it is very important place. For a tourist this is just a 5 mins stop over

A statue that could be found at Promenade Beach. Since, it is a French War Memorial, it is quite close to the French consulate. A must visit if you want to rejig your World War Memories.

You can just have a glance while walking on the beach road. This is opposite the Le cafe. a very simple white monument. Not sure if people are allowed to go inside or not.
