This memorial consists of a shaded walk between standing stones commemorating all the reporter lost in areas of conflict. Quite amazing how many names there are.

We accidentally found this and as it covers from 1950`s to present day it was very interesting. My daughter even found the Paris journalists from me suis Charlie . Beautifully maintained.

An easy walk from the middle of town, this tribute is moving and eye opening. Spending time in the war museum, cemetery and the memorial was a perfect way to spend a pretty fall afternoon.

My husband, adult son, and I were leaving the Museum of the Battle of Normandy to visit the British War Cemetery when we happened across this memorial. It is laid out quite simply along a peaceful, well landscaped path with tall stone markers. Each marker...More

Journalists are often the overlooked casualties of war but this memorial is a stark reminder of their sacrifices - in every year since 1945. Its easy to miss but the memorials are in a peaceful wooded glade across the road from the British War cemetery.
