Avenue Pierre de Coubertin
At Calais Nord, adjacent to the civil section of the cemetery and comparable with the situation in Bruges (Belgium), our Ministry of Defence is servicing a military cemetery where 1,045 Belgian victims of the First World War are buried.
1,030 soldiers are identified on a nameplate. There are 15 soldiers known to God only.
There is also a Belgian soldier, victim of WW 2.
Although the military section of the cemetery has its own entrance along the Boulevard du 8 Mai, visitors should use the main entrance on the Avenue Pierre de Coubertin, for twice we have found the entrace door on the Avenue du 8 Mai locked.
