Half a mile east of Wulvergem, just south of the road that leads towards Messines (now Mesen), this farm down in the valley of the River Douve plays host to two CWGC cemeteries.
Spot the Cross of Sacrifice. Sunset at Ration Farm (La Plus Douve) Annexe.
Oosttaverne Wood Cemetery, the final stop on our Tour of the Messines Ridge.
Just before we arrive at the final cemetery on our tour, we pass this roadside memorial, known as the ‘Butterfly Memorial’, to the men of the 19th Division.
As evening begins to fall and our tour nears its end, we find ourselves at the little cemetery of Somer Farm, on the north eastern outskirts of Wytschaete.
A winter’s day in Wytschaete. In June 1917 this scene would have been one of utter devastation.
Torreken Farm Cemetery No.1 lies in the fields half a mile north west of Derry House, to the south east of the village of Wytschaete (Wijtschate).
