June 2003


We visited the Canadian cemetery at Cintheaux; there were 2959 graves. It looks like an English cemetery with the same style entrée, the same gravestones, the same beds and of course the same grass mower. On every cemetery where we visited they were mowing the grass. The grass is already very short, but still they mow it and if you watch behind the mower there is nothing coming off the grass.
Here we found a monument for Gerard Dore, the youngest Canadian victim. He was only 16 years.
