Pretty beautiful indian memorial. The names are carved in a circular pattern all around you when you walk in. Pretty impressive and nice tribute to the dead.
A very serene and peaceful memorial to the Indian Corps' contribution to the Western Front. A beautiful memorial commemorating India's War dead. Notice the holes, which was collateral damage, due to German fire in 1940 when the British dug in outside the memorial to stop the Wehrmacht advancing.
