Now I want to know more .
If I were a relative of one of the soldiers buried there, I would feel some peace about where my loved one lies after reading that.

Again Doug, thanks for one more history and culture lesson.

This is a black chapter of English War history,. that's why they don't mention it on history books. I've been born in the Netherlands but from Turkish origin. They never told me on history lessons at school of this part of the WW1 history.
