  • Description

    May 13 was a day of memories for many French war veterans who made a pilgrimage to World War One battlefields and military cemeteries near Arras.

    Wreaths were laid and short services of remembrance held at monuments in the British, Canadian, Czechoslovakian and Polish Military Cemeteries.

    Later, the old soldiers - whose visit was organized by the World War Veterans Federation - toured the trenches and battlefields of the 1914-1918 conflict where so many of their comrades had fallen.
