  • This clip's current given location of "Ypres, Austria" is incorrect.

    The location is in fact just outside of Passendale, Belgium, for the clip shows the "Tyne Cot Commonwealth War Graves Cemetery and Memorial to the Missing". It is the burial ground for the dead from the Ypres Salient in WWI.

    The church seen at 00:36 is the Sint-Audomarus kerk.
