Next to Essex Farm Cemetary is the original preserved advanced dressing station. These were effectively just behind the front line and this was where men and their wounds were accessed.

Just on the outskirts of Ieper, this Cemetery is combined with the sites associated with John McCrae and his famous poem.

A very peaceful spot, like all the other cemeteries in Ieper, immaculately maintained. As with many of the graves in other cemeteries there are countless grave stones marking the resting place of unknown soldiers, and as with other cemeteries there are countless graves of those who died in their teens or early twenties.

A moving site and informative site, with it the gravestone of a 15 year old soldier, and the dressing station site of Canadian physician and poet John McCrae. (Note, this combines the Essex Cemetery and the John McCrae site.)
