At many of the cemeteries the head stones are exactly where the men fell. So some are placed rather erratically and others are evenly spaced.
The Flanders Fields Museum is enormous. It is going to be closed and renovated towards the end of the year to mark the 100th anniversary of the beginning of WW1 in 2014.
The Lochnagar Crater, at La Boiselle, is privately owned by Richard Dunning, having been bought in 1978 to save at least one of the original 1 July 1916 Somme craters from being filled in and built upon by local farmers. The Lochnagar Crater measured 91 metres across and 27 metres deep.
