War is a crime. Ask the Infantry and ask the dead.
The battlefields of the Ypres Salient are nowadays the resting place of many thousands of soldiers of different nationalities who died during WW 1 battles around town of Ypres (Ieper). The Ypres sector had a four years of trench warfare fighting concentrated in the narrow area north, east and south of the town. Many thousands had died in the daily tour of the trenches or in an attack on the enemy line. There were many military burial grounds at the end of the war. Later the graves in the many of the small burial grounds are reinterred into larger cemetries or concentration cemetries. The land on which the Commonwealth cemetries are located has been given in gratitude by the Belgian nation. The area of Ypres now contains the resting place of many thousands of soldiers and airmen in over 100 British and Commonwealth military cemetries, one German, two French and one Belgian military cemetry.
It was very impressing visiting a few of them during our bike tours last weekend... ■
So that this may never be forgotten... #westhoek#worldwarone#cemetries#soldiers#belgie 🇧🇪 #belgium 🇧🇪 #ieper#Commonwealth
