Lovely tribute

This is a lovely tribute to fallen men. The grounds are beautifully maintained and it is very peaceful. The Dutch people express their undying gratitude in a most beautiful way.

Drove through Belgium to get here. As with other Commonwealth War Graves, it was beautifully kept. Park like grounds were so respectful of those buried there. Visited the grave of a relative buried there. So moved by the site.

We visited the cemetery because we were visiting the National Liberation Museum. Thankfully, we have no family buried here but as Canadians we wanted to visit so our sons could see some of the sacrifices the soldiers made
