Wieltje Farm

This is a small battlefield cemetery, which is reached via a long grass path from the road. It was used between July and October 1917 during the 3rd Ypres. There are 116 burials in total, and 10 of these are unidentified. 113 are United Kingrom, 1 Canadian, 1 New Zealand, 1 German and 20 special memorials.

These photos evidence the work of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, who keep the cemeteries in good order. Here, the cemetery has recently been reseeded; however, I managed to take my photos without disturbing the newly seeded ground. The roses and shrubs, common across CWGC sites, continue to add colour whilst the grass has time to grow.
