If you grew up in Canada or the UK, you know his poem, this place is where Dr. McRae tended to the wounded, there is a small cemetery there as well. I would not have missed this.

Well worth a visit to see the fairly small cemetery and also some adjacent bunkers. Easy to find the site.

The McCrae site is small but worth a visit to the spot where the famous poem was written and to see some fairly well preserved medical bunkers and cemetery and monuments.
