Jo’s Monday Walk

Week-45

Polygon Wood Cemetery-2
Belgium

Click here for part 1

This week we visit the…

 Australian 5th Division Memorial

and Cemetery at Polygon Woods.

Part 1 showed the Memorial Plaque,

in close up on the obelisk….

which is upon the Butte and

overlooking the Cemetery.

Throughout this journey it was small things

like the cross, bottom left hand….

 and its message which made me realise

how much people half a world away

appreciate the sacrifices Down Under

made for  their country.

 

As with every Cemetery we visited

there was always a great proportion

of headstones for unknown soldiers.

As we were leaving…

 

 I thought the surrounding woods…

 were worthy of a few photos.

All cemeteries had a beautiful serenity

about them which I thought hammered home

the total and utter waste of life because

people cannot get along with each other.

 One final look at he obelisk and

we were on our way again.
