Black and White Tuesday

~~~~~

Fromelles War Cemetery where the remains

of soldiers recently found in mass graves,

in nearby Pheasant Wood,

are interred.

Entrance to Fromelles War Grave Cemetery.

 The middle grave in the front (foreground) row,

with the Australian flag,

belongs to MGW’s cousin’s uncle…

18-year-old Private Justin Hercules Breguet.

And….because MGW and her cousin share

the same (Breguet) grandmother,

Justin is MGW’s uncle also.

Not sure if it is correct to talk in he first person of someone

who died 100 years ago…

 

but it does seem correct.

Apologies to students of the English language.

As you can see the War Graves are attached to the

Fromelles General Cemetery,

so a visit to Fromelles,

is a visit to the fallen soldiers as well.

No excuses.
