... French people can be decorative with their graves if they want to be (pic 12).
One major disappointment though was that the top floor was closed due to renovation and restoration. What was kinda neat though was they allowed you to look in on one of the folks doing the restoration work (pic 13). That job must be a little bit stressful I’d imagine.

Tyne Cot Memorial walls alone hold nearly 35,000 names of allied servicemen who died in the Ypres Salient after 16 August 1917 and whose graves are not known. There are a further 12,000 buried or commemorated in the cemetery, almost 8,500 of whom are unidentified - and this is just one cemetery!
