Travel Theme-Behind

My

Behind

 Travel Theme.

~~~~~

A few years ago while in Africa…

I developed a totally unfounded reputation of

being a tail-end Charlie.

Nothing has changed and this year,

at Hill 60, in Belgium, the only…

time I was in front (of the crowd) was when

I scrambled up this bunker to have my photo taken.

These days however, the ascent is far easier than the descent.

So by the time I had carefully descended from

my precarious position,  most of the crowd

had reach our starting point again.

And yes, there I was back, bringing up the rear of

my fellow travellers and the next group

of school children to visit Hill 60.

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.
