Le Cimetière Adélaïde à Villers-Bretonneux


Il y a toujours un fort sentiment en France qu'on doit une dette d'honneur ou de gratitude aux ANZACS.
C'est sans doute le plus fort
à Villers Bretonneux.
Le logo utilisé sur leur site Internet officiel, comprend d'un kangourou stylisé des lettres VB.

There is still a strong feeling in France that they owe a debt of honour or gratitude to the ANZACS.
This is probably strongest in Villers Bretonneux.
The logo used on their official web site is a kangaroo stylized from the letters VB.


Depuis les quelques marches à l'angle d'un mur signalant le Cimetière Adélaïde, on aperçoit la croix de pierre au bout du sentier.

Past these few steps by the corner of a wall announcing the Adelaide Cemetery, the stone cross can be seen at the end of the path.

Ca me plait que les Français montrent leur reconnaissance envers les Australiens qui sont venus se battre et mourir ici.

It's true M. Benaut, some French may despise what the Americans did for us during the WWI and II, but they don't question what the English, Scottish, Aussies, kiwis... did.

Coming from so far away to get killed in a war that is not really yours is very brave.

I'm glad that some French cities keep the memory.

Merci monsieur Benaut pour ce post !
