If only he could be here today to tell us about his experiences beneath Hill 60. The whole hill is now preserved (as best that nature allows) as it was at the end of the war. The trenches, cave-in hollows and bunker holes/debris are all still clearly visible. We arrived at Ypres at 2pm, despite ...

... commemorates 11000 diggers that have no known graves. Our government have just spent 10 million dollars here, we visited it in the wind, cold and rain as it sits on high ground just out of the town.
