Came to pay my respects to the two RAMC soldiers who are buried here. I've been to several War Cemetries and like this one, they are always well maintained. I'm always amazed at the far flung places the British military served in. RIP.

Arrived when the gates should have been opened but the caretaker obviously went home early. Graves very well maintained and memorials moving - helped to keep everything in perspective. Saddened that so many died so young but always the case when visiting these sites
