We had picked up a leaflet from where we were staying for the rampart walk and found this spot. We found these Maori graves ,then two days later there were Maoris doing the Haka at the Menin Gate ceremony ,very poignant.

The resting place of soldiers, a number of them are british soldiers. Those without a name had 'known unto God' inscribed on their tombstone. I found that comforting and so true! A beautiful setting overlooking a stream.
