The War Cemetery contains the graves of almost 7000 mostly British and Australian prisoners and is one of two cemeteries in the town. It is immaculately maintained and worth a visit.

This is an historic area but not much to see, unless you are interested in wandering through the rows of graves. It is a beautiful and well-maintained area. It gives you an idea of just how many lives were lost during this period.

Visited today first thing before the tours arrived, really quiet and serene just us and the gardener. The place is wonderfully kept with shrubs and plants between each grave. Chance to remember those lost and their sacrifices and to offer gratitude for what we have.
