Visiting The fallen Arras South

Visiting The fallen Arras South

There are many hundreds of Commonwealth War Graves Commission cemeteries all across France and Belgium and to better understand them they divided down to battlegrounds. This work concentrates on those in the southern area of Arras, a battle which began in April 1917 with fierce fighting around features such as Telegraph Hill.

Thousands were killed on both sides and this work covers the cemeteries where British and Commonwealth troops from Canada and Australia are buried.

From the smallest, such as Morchies Communal Cemetery where there are only eight military graves, to the locations with thousands, are all listed here. Some cemeteries are very remote but they are each in their turn worthy of visiting.
