Welsh - Caesars Nose - CWGC Cemetery Featured 1 Jun 2020 Image

Welsh - Caesars Nose - CWGC Cemetery

This small cemetery stands on the site of a German redoubt which was called Fortin 17. Fighting around this area began in 1915. The German defence line had a sharp bend in it which reduced the distance between the opposing sides to some 50 yards. Drawn on a map the line looked like a Roman nose - hence (Caesars). The cemetery is in the middle of a field. It was begun in July 1917 and used until November 1918. There are 68 burials. Date: 2004

Ypres Ramparts CWGC Cemetery seen across the moat Featured 1 Jun 2020 Image

Ypres Ramparts CWGC Cemetery seen across the moat

The earliest settlement in this area is thought to have been near Langemarck in about AD960 and gradually a cluster of villages grew up around the Yperlee. As Ypres increased in importance it was occupied or fought over by different nationalities - English, French, Dutch and the Austrians. In the late 1600s Vauban built a series of ramparts and fortifications and Ypres became a walled city surrounded by a moat, as it is today. The cemetery has 153 UK, 11 Australian, 10 Canadian, and 14 New Zealand burials. The approach path is named after Rose Coombs, the IWM author whose Before Endeavours Fade book was one of the first reference works for the area. Date: 2011
