Calais (Nord)

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.
