A road divides the British Cemetery into north and south halves. From the road, looking south, this is what you see.
It doesn't look very promising, does it?
But then you come into the green space, very well tended, orderly, serene.
There are several large monuments in the southern half of the cemetery--more from WWI. This one stood more or less in the center of the space. Facing it and positioned at the edges of the cemetery were other large monuments inscribed with the names of other fallen men.
This one, for "the Hindu soldiers of the Indian Army"
And another for the Indian Army's Muslim soldiers.
And another, far larger monument for the "men of the Egyptian Labor Corps".
It was so big that I had to crop it mercilessly, otherwise none of the text would be legible.
It's overwhelming to see so many names. It's somehow harder to comprehend than the expansive fields full of individual markers at a place like Arlington.
Maybe it was because I found the larger markers overwhelming that I spent more time focused on the graves with individual headstones. They were easier to look at, less difficult to comprehend.
