Tidworth Military Cemetery


Travelling across Salisbury Plain yesterday, an hour in hand and a brief diversion brought me to the entrance to Tidworth Military Cemetery.  There are more than 400 First World War burials here, the majority men who were killed in accidents at the many training camps that were sited in the area, or who died at the two military hospitals at Tidworth and Fargo Camp.  More than half of these burials are men from Australia and New Zealand, and those of you who follow this blog Down Under, in particular, might find the forthcoming, if hardly imminent, tour of this cemetery of interest.

Update: You can now find the full tour here:  Tidworth Military Cemetery
