American Cemetery and Memorial

Skye and Poppy guest blogged today 🙂

Today Dad took us to the Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial. We have driven past it quite a few times but never been inside. It was very peaceful walking round and made us feel a bit emotional, there were thousands of people buried there, it was quite overwhelming. The walkway was beautiful, there was a pond with an extremely long wall running alongside it with thousands and thousands of soldiers names who were missing in action.

We then walked over to the visitors centre which had an interactive timeline that had only been brought in and installed this morning from America 🙂 It was quite interesting watching footage from the War.

We had a really nice afternoon and would definitely go back.
