Some War Cemeteries and Memorials

Here are some photographs of the cemeteries and memorials where the men of Withernwick of the war memorial have found their last resting place. I have visited some of the places in Belgium and France and they are very beautiful places. They are a fitting memory to these men who gave their lives for what they believed in. I hope these photographs help bring the men to life in a little way more.
