An English garden to rest in

Watching a rerun of the Passchendaele programme, I was very taken with the groundsmen at Tyne Cot when they were interviewed. They spoke of keeping the cemetery as a garden for the soldiers to take their final rest in, a little piece of England in Belgium. They also spoke of feeling close to the men buried there.

That’s how I feel about ‘my’ soldier and his grave. It doesn’t look this untidy after today’s sprucing up!
