Vlamertinge Military Cemetery

Taken on a recent visit to Belgium, this is the most beautiful cemetry I had ever seen,such wonderful and attractive surroundings.
It contains 1,176 graves of soldiers who died of wounds received in the Salient.

A bit out of my comfort zone this, so I hope you like it.

Wow isnt that uncanny that we both posted military war memorial pictures one right after another! Looks a very peaceful place to rest next to the lake. Nice and timely image. Smile

beautiful image
I have a fascination for churches and graveyards in beautiful settings.
It was a family joke when an aunty remarked she would like to be buried in a graveyard high on a hill because of the beautiful VIEW!

Well done Fran, nice shot.
Done the war grave visits back in April 05 and what stands out in my mind was after what must have been total carnage the silence and the immaculate tidiness of all the cemeteries. You could never put this into words, you have to go to take in the whole experience.

Superb shot Fran. I love every thing it stands for and every thought it contains.Like Peter Oak I have done the tour of the battlefield areas and after a lifetime in the military myself I salute each and every one of these brave souls that lie there.
