The bravery of some people defy description. Noel Chavasse, RAMC, twice awarded the VC (one of only three people) and an Military Cross. Lies with colleagues. A place of pilgrimage. Convenient parking nearby, flat short walk from the road to the cemetery.

Travelled to see the resting place of Noel Chavasse, three military Cemeteries in Brandhoek which is a small and unremarkable place. Its hard to imagine the horror of what it would have been like during the first world war.

Basically the cemetery is overlooked by the garden of some bungalows (i'd find it hard to overlook this cemetery constantly because the history of the whole area is so moving). We went specifically to look at the headstone of the double VC - Noel Chavasse...More

Not that I am aware of, although given the location there must be something. The other idea is rent a bike and go the 5-6 kMs west of Ieper. Lot of e-bikes for rent in Ieper.
