Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, Alpes-Maritimes

10 Chemin de Saint-Hospice

 

 

We returned from Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat with 88 pictures of military graves, all victims of WW1.

 

 

 

 

 

The above plaque, attached at the cemetery entrance, claims 90 compatriots are buried in this cemetary and the list of the IV NIOOO has 92 names on it. We have not photographed one grave because whatever inscription once might have been on it was now erased. That grave is counted as an unidentified soldier, because we had a choice of 4 soldiers that it could belong to. So we did not make that choice. The honorary park was Belgians only and seemed like limited to the area we counted and screened.

 

 

 

 

This cemetery is adjacent to the building where the war victims stayed during their rehabilitation. Unfortunately for the heroes buried here, there was no chance of going home for them. Again, they were all victims of gas attacks by the Germans.

A second plaque, at the entrance to the cemetery, claimed that recovering Belgian soldiers stayed at various Belgian royal properties along the Côte d'Azur in France.
