The site of the final stages of the battle - the tennis court - is clearly marked out on the edge of this beautifully kept military cemetery. It is peaceful although in the town and a very moving experience to pay it a visit.

I've been to a number of war cemeteries in the UK and have never seen as many local people paying their respects to the fallen like I did here. It's become a part of the social scene to go thee with friends and study the gravestones and was a great thing to see
