this was our second trip here, did it in 1989 and again now in 2018. A trip to the beaches should always be accompanied by a trip to the cemetery to pay your respect for the sacrifices. it is heart warming to see how well...More

This out of the way and smaller tribute to Canadians who made the ultimate sacrifice, is as beautiful and well maintained as its American counterpart. Just east of Reviers, the cemetery sits amongst fields, and has mature maple trees lining the perimeter of the site....More

It is a more personal cemetery than the American one: it has more personal messages to the fallen heroes, flowers between each stone, flags and gifts. It is a very pretty cemetery filled with maple leaf trees.

I think everyone who visits the American cemetery in Normandy should also visit the Canadian site as well. It’s about 20 miles away, but on a major roadway between for Falaise and Caen. It is a very moving experience and reminds us all of the...More

This is one of so many cemeteries maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. Those interred here are Canadians who lost their lives at Juno Beach. Saddest of all are the numbers of stones with no name, simply engraved "A Canadian Soldier of WWII".
