I attended the ceremony in December to place a wreath on each grave sight.I was so moved by the patriotism and comaradarie exhibited by the participants. Hundreds of people from all over the country attended, and yet, it was respectfully quiet.

Well designed premises, with central area for viewing history etc, individual areas for private services, attended by Full uniform service people. A fitting tribute. Can be hot in the summer, with limited shade, depending upon your visit.
