  • 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.
  • Largest commonwealth cemetry. Been here a few times and it's always an eye opener. Worth reading up before you go to have a better understanding of the area. Obviously it's very well kept and deservedly so.
  • Impressive. A must visit if you are in this area. Freedom isn't free. Lest not forget.
  • I had no Idea until I visited that the graves are all around the 3 concrete German pill boxes they were all fighting over. 2 of the pill boxes are right there in plain site. This battle was far more horrible apparently than most battles and it is hard to express the feelings you have when you are there.
