Tyne Cot Cemetery

Tyne Cot is the largest of the First World War Cemeteries in Flanders. Not only does it contain the earlthly remains of nearly 12,000 solldiers, but on the wall on the back are another 35,000 names - part of those they couldn't find any bits to bury.

It is built on a ridge that saw particularly bloody fighting. There were some pill boxes that looked to the soldiers from a Northumbrian regiment like cottages back home on the Tyne.

I wanted to take a picture that reflected what it feels like to see. Maybe I ended up with a cliche, maybe there is no other way. Posted by Picasa
