Captain Charles Pooley, 5/Dragoon Guards, was killed in action on 9th August 1918 near Rosieres.

Although now buried in Caix British Cemetery, he was initially interred in De Lune British Cemetery. Can anyone tell me where this first cemetery was located please?

It doesn't appear in "The White Cross Touring Atlas", so no quick answer.

Why not send the cwgc an email to ask ?

Accordign to the CWGC info about Caix cemetery, it was De Luce cemetery.

DE LUCE BRITISH CEMETERY, CAIX, close to the North Bank of the river, which contained the graves of 17 soldiers and airmen from the United Kingdom, eight Canadian and five Australian soldiers, all of whom fell in August, 1918.
