  • Tyne Cot Commonwealth War Graves Cemetery and Memorial to the Missing is a very respectful and Tranquil place. If you're in Belgium I definitely recommend that you come here no matter how far away it is out of your way. It is a Very moving place with many graves that are honoured even if their names are not known. It is Definitely somewhere worth visiting and paying respects to. It offers much information as well. The site is very well maintained.
  • Strong place. You should come and see and do your best to avoid it happening again.
