British War Cemetery, Bayeux Reviews
Visited with my British friends in the summer of 2017. This cemetery is very well kept and is quite beautiful. Each headstone has the name and the division of the brave soldier who fought for all of our freedoms that we take for granted today. God save the queen, Viva la France, and God bless America.
A beautiful cemetery , we were passing and stopped to pay our respects to those that had given their lives for our freedom. As with all the war cemetery's they are kept so tidy and are so very beautiful and peaceful. Lest we forget.
Peaceful place for heros to rest, and for the rest of us to reflect on their sacrifice.
Beautiful & very moving. Well maintained as always.
In remembrance of the fallen comrades. The cemetery is amazing.
