Happened across this Memorial en route between two Cemeteries I was visiting. A fitting reminder of the far reaches of the Commonwealth all coming together for the War. Beautiful structure with a few additional extras that you may miss if you dont look hard enough. The high walls give a great sense of peace when you are inside memorial, but outside the walls are pockmarked with bullet holes from the Second World War.

A stunning memorial, beautifully maintained. A bit difficult to get to without a car but if you like a hike, take a train to Le Bassee then walk the 6 and a half kilometres each way.

Very moving memorial and speaks volumes for the British Empire at the time when you realise so many men remembered on the memorial were 'followers' and not even soldiers!

Hello,
The commemoration of the Battle of Neuve-Chapelle was organized in the Indian Memorial, in the presence of the Ambassador of India the 13th of March. A very moving moment !
You can discover WW1 memory sites with the remembrance trail "14-18 The world at War" on the website http://www.remembrancetrails-northernfrance.com/walking-and-cycling.html

Best regards,
Antoine.
