*****

Tyne Cot Cemetery at Passendale (Belgium) on the battlefields where in 1917 one of the bloodiest battles of WWI took place.

With 11.956 white gravestones, it is the largest British war cemetery in the world.
70% of all buried soldiers are unknown and the inscription on their graves reads : "known only to God"
Many soldiers who died were only 18 years old, always someone’s child…….

(my shot shows only a small part of this immense sad place)
