|Tyne Cot Cemetery - November 6th 2017|
On Monday we had the large cemetery at Tyne Cot to ourselves - it was early on bright morning and we were able to pay our respects.
With over 12000 graves and 34000 memorial names to those with no known grave it really is a "Silent City"
As November the 6th was 100 years to the day of the final attack of the Canadian 2nd Division into the centre of the village of Passchendaele we made our way a few minutes up the ridge to the village.

|100 years to the day - Not Forgotten|
I stood in front on the graves of men killed exactly 100 years ago - I wondered did their relatives ever get chance to visit from their far away shores? Perhaps they could take comfort that someone was there to remember.
