In the next couple of weeks I am making a short trip and have reasons to visit La Clytte and Vlamertinghe New Military cemeteries. If anyone needs photos here I am happy to help out.

This short trip is being fitted around a holiday with family so I am not exactly sure of dates or if I will manage to fit in other cemeteries but these two are top of my list.

 

Just let me know (by Thursday 8th if possible).

Noted!

NMC should not be a problem. I would like to visit the MC too but I have a lot to pack in to that day and timing depends somewhat on my chauffeur/son and his ability to get on the move in good time!

My visit to these cemeteries has been delayed until the beginning of next week so there is still time if anyone else has a request.

Mission accomplished, on all fronts. 

I will pass on the photographs over the weekend, once I am home.

I have passed individual photos on by DM but here are some overview photos of the two cemeteries at Vlamertinghe in case they are of interest to anyone. At New Military Cemetery we were greeted by a sheep as we walked up the path but once in the cemetery there were some very large and extremely vocal cows who took great interest in our presence. Maybe it was lunchtime! I had to include them in a photo.
