CWGC Tyne Cot Cemetery is an impressive and subdued haven of tranquility situated in the erstwhile war landscape of WW I. Its 11,956 war graves constitute the biggest Commonwealth cemetery in the world, silent witnesses to the bloody Battle of Passchendaele during WW I . Almost 500,000 soldiers perished over a 100 days’ period during the British offensive in 1917, gaining no more than 8 km on enemy terrain. After the war – between 1919 and 1921 – the British ‘Exhumation Companies’ collected some 12,000 corpses in the surrounding (battle)fields, of which a mere 3,800 could be identified. A location which will leave nobody untouched.
