Along the River Lys: The Franco-Belgian Border Part Two – Comines Communal Cemetery

North of the river, in the Belgian section of Comines, the Commonwealth Plot in Comines Communal Cemetery bears witness to the severity of the now largely-forgotten fighting that took place in the vicinity in late May 1940.  During the subsequent German occupation, one hundred men, all but five of them identified, were brought in from isolated burials in the area and buried here by the local inhabitants in back-to-back graves.
