This is what we managed to see and do - many cemeteries for myself and fellow travellers - just noted my ones with who we visited and remembered.Not as rushed as it might appear though.

Stayed at the Ariane Ypres on the 10th and 11th and at the Beatus Cambrai on the 13th.

Needless to say, we missed our booked ferry on the 13th and took a much later sailing...
