- Very moving site.
The cemetery curator was extremely knowledgeable and complimentary of the CWG.
He spoke of a ceremony on Sunday 20th Sept at 11AM to pay hommage to those who lost their lives fighting far from their homes and famililies.
Anyone in Paris on that date would be well advised to participate.
