Lijssenthoek cemetery is a fitting place to remember those who gave up everything for our futures in World War One. Being the second largest commonwealth World War One cemetery in the world, the graves stretched far and wide and gave a true glimpse into the scale of the war. On site, there is a visitors centre and a toilet block too. On a rainy, windy day the ground was not too damp, although walking shoes would be advised.

Next to Tyne Cot and Verdun, there's no other visual display of loss like this place. It's an endless sea of white headstones, and it's quite overwhelming to the eyes. You could spend hours, days possibly, trying to visit them all. Just being on the grounds gives you a sense of pride and sorrow in the same emotion. Visiting even one is worth the stop. I was glad to see many families with young children there...to keep the torch high, so to speak. Pay attention to the barrier along the sidewalk as you leave. It's a monthly bar graph showing the dates and numbers of soldiers lost over the course of the war.

We spent most of an hour in the visitor centre, before walking around the graves. The visitor information was very immersive and added to the solemnity and emotion of the visit. The intent of the war graves commission is very well executed around all the cemeteries we have visited, and reminds us, once again, how lucky we are to live in a united Europe- long may it continue!
