The Rusthof cemetery (Dutch: begraafplaats Rusthof is located in Oud-Leusden, Leusden municipality, Utrecht Province, Netherlands. It is the largest cemetery that services Amersfoort, which is 4 km south of. Therefore it is often called Amersfoort General Cemetery or Amersfoort (Old Leusden) Cemetery or other variants.

It is a partly civilian partly military cemetery. Buried there are the victims of World War II, including 238 soldiers and pilots killed in action from the British Commonwealth, Poland, Belgium and France, also World War II military victims from Yugoslavia, Greece, Hungary, Romania, Portugal, Czechoslovakia and Italy (World War I and II), as well as 865 soldiers from the Soviet Union,
A number of Soviet victims came from the nearby Kamp Amersfoort. The Soviet soldiers were eventually reburied in 1947/1948 from some other places in what is called “the Russian Honor Field” or “the Soviet Field of Glory”

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.

Lest we forget   16 comments

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
John McCrae

In Flanders fields the poppies blow…   Leave a comment

“In Flanders Fields” is a war poem in the form of a rondeau, written during the First World War by Canadian physician and Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae.t is one of the most popular and most quoted poems from the war. As a result of its immediate popularity, parts of the poem were used in propaganda efforts and appeals to recruit soldiers and raise money selling war bonds. Its references to the red poppies that grew over the graves of fallen soldiers resulted in the remembrance poppy becoming one of the world’s most recognized memorial symbols for soldiers who have died in conflict. The poem and poppy are prominent Remembrance Day symbols throughout the Commonwealth of Nations, particularly in Canada, where “In Flanders Fields” is one of the nation’s best known literary works.
