Cabaret Rouge. Arguably, the most beautiful of all Commonwealth War Cemeteries. You won't necessarily see it from ground level, but it was designed in a sort of kite shape with all of the headstones radiating, symetrically, from the stone of sacrifice. Take a look at it on the satellite images from google maps. It is one of the biggest Commonwealth War cemeteries on the Western Front, with more than 7,000 men buried here. The Canadian unknown soldier was originally interred here. His former resting place is marked by a special headstone. Many other Great War sites lie within a few kilometres of Cabaret Rouge. The most important being, The French national monument and cemetery at Notre Dame de Lorette, the Ring of Remembrance, the Canadian national monement at Vimy Ridge and the huge German cemetery of 'La Maison Blanche'.
Quiet and peaceful final resting place of so many British, commonwealth and an american soldier.
