Jonkerbos – War Cemetery-Nijmegen/the Netherlands   6 comments

The Netherlands fell to the Germans in May 1940 and was not re-entered by Allied forces until September 1944. Nijmegen was a front line town from 17 September 1944 until February 1945. The cemetery, which was created by No. 3 Casualty Clearing Station RAMC during Operation Market Garden, is in a wooded area known as Jonkers Bosch, from which it took its name. Many soldiers buried here died of their wounds during the winter of 1944/45 when the Island, south of Arnhem, was held by units of XXX Corps, and much of the British army was dug in along the Maas river.

Jonkerbos War Cemetery contains 1,629 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War, 99 of them unidentified, and 13 war graves of other nationalities.

  1. I love that you got the verticals parallel and that there is a slither of gap between the pillars in the centre. A classic photo style very well done.

    • Was even zoeken naar de goeie hoogte maar…het is een zeer bescheiden begraafplaats vergeleken met een aantal anderen die ik heb bezocht , en allemaal met dat impossante kruis
