Tyne Cot
Tyne Cot - the largest British war cemetery in the world
"Tyne Cot is so beautiful when you are there early in the morning," Yvonne Heslinga writes. "The fog was thick, the silence lay as a blanket over the graves. And then, a lonely sound, a lonesome bagpiper playing his lament. So beautiful, so terribly beautiful."

"I will never forget this, it is one of those things that stay with you forever, and strike you in the deepest of your soul."

Yvonne Heslinga is webmaster of an important Dutch/Flemish Great War meeting place: Forum Eerste Wereldoorlog.

They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun, and in morning
We will remember them.
Lawrence Binyon
