Terlincthun British Cemetery

Military cemetery (WIMILLE)

With space exhausted in Boulogne and Wimereux, a new burial site was opened in June 1918 in Terlincthun to accommodate the soldiers who died in the base hospitals on the French coast. The central path of the cemetery was aligned with the Column of the Grande Armée which can be seen in the distance. This contrivance of the architect Sir Herbert Baker is best viewed from behind the Stone of Remembrance and seems to suggest that Napoleon, atop his column, is watching over the dead of the Great War.
