One of the most sobering sights I have ever seen- on the rear wall, behind the graves of the Commonwealth soldiers who were buried (over 3500), list after list of names of those Commonwealth soldiers of Paschendaele whose bodies were never found (8369 of them)

This is Tyne Cot.

Tyne Cot, WW1 graves and memorial plaques

Linked to One Word Sunday at Debbie’s here


  1. A place never forgotten.

  2. Those French war grave sites are indeed moving and unforgettable.

  3. How very very sad Sue. Each one had a family waiting for them to come home and they never did. When will we learn?

  4. and still, we think that military actions are the solution.

  5. Very sad. And this is only the continuation of the list of missing started at Menin Gate and they ran out of room for all the names.
    My grandfather lies in one of the smaller cemeteries – died at just 21

  6. This is a perfect photo for countless.

  7. Very sad news 🙏sacrifices for own country 🙏🌷
