Reviewed May 7, 2013

Went here on my solo bicycle tour of Belgium and the battle fields of WWI and WWII, and was overly impressed with this piece of history.

“worth a visit”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

Look out for the grave of a fifteen year old, you will spot it as it will have all poppies and flags left there. And the dressing station where the poet/surgeon which wrote 'in Flander's fields' worked, and why we were poppies

“The most poinant cemetry”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Read John McRaes poem where it was written, see the block houses used as a dressing station, see the 49th Division memorial overlooking the canal. A must do visit when in the salient.

“How they lived and died.”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

This is a very poignant place to visit, it shows how close to the enemy these young soldiers were, every day facing the most awful danger, noise and chaos.
