The best day in three years of BBBR 2/n #BBBR14

Moving on another 8 miles or so we got to St Symphorien cemetery. A fascinating WWI cemetery with German and Allied men.

Its going to be centre piece of the war commemorations.

The ceremony, as always was moving.

Amongst the buried are
The first and last British casualties.
The first VC to be awarded in WWI
The first officer casualty.
The last Canadian - 9:30 or so on 11/11
