Visiting the graves and memorials of the Coo-ees in England, France and Belgium

Visiting the graves and memorials of the Coo-ees

I am currently on holidays overseas with my husband Stephen. Included in our busy itinerary over the next few weeks is visiting the graves of the Coo-ees who died while on active service in England, France and Belgium during the First World War, and/or the memorials where their names are commemorated, if they have no known grave. This will include visiting approximately 27 cemeteries and memorials, including the Menin Gate at Iepers (Ypres) in Belgium, and the Australian National Memorial at Villers-Bretonneux in France.

I plan to include a brief blog entry about each of these cemeteries and memorials, and the names of the Coo-ees who are buried or named there.

We are taking photographs of each grave, or name on the memorial, to include on each individual Coo-ee’s blog entry after we return to Australia, which will form a Roll of Honour for the Coo-ees on this blog.
