One of the most moving sites we visited
was next to the Prowse Point Military Cemetery,
Prowse Point was of one of
the 1914 Christmas truces.
Apparently both sides were singing Christmas Carols
and eventually decided to lay down
their arms for the day.
However all that changed once the British Command
heard of what was going on.
They ordered the renewal of hostility and soldiers from both sides
of the battle who had formed friendships for a short while
were again trying the kill each other.
