We can truly say that the whole circuit of the earth is girdled with the graves of our dead.  In the course of my pilgrimage, I have many times asked myself whether there can be more potent advocates of peace upon earth through the years to come, than this massed multitude of silent witnesses to the desolation of war.”

King George V, Tyne Cot Cemetery, 11 May 1922

We will remember them.


  1. Indeed Sidney, Tyne Cot is a truly moving place.

  2. It is, November 3rd saw me and some 100 pupils of our school visit it. At the same time a school from Wales was there and held a short ceremony at the large square stone in the centre. They sang a hymn there and we all had goosebumps, it was thát impressive. Lest we forget!
