Finally France!

Lots of very pretty, peaceful cemeteries and old battlefields today.

Daffodils at Fleurs Fields, Cobbers memorial at Fromelles, and the serene Le Trou Cemetry.

Just a bit of general knowledge. Fromelles was the site of first major Australian involvement on the Western Front. It's where my soldier Leslie Varley Duxbury most probably fought. Very peaceful but moving to remember the 5500 Australia men who were casualties here in only a matter of 24 hours.

Sunrise through Menin Gate this morning was also spectacular!!
