This is one of so many cemeteries maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. Those interred here are Canadians who lost their lives at Juno Beach. Saddest of all are the numbers of stones with no name, simply engraved "A Canadian Soldier of WWII".

This cemetary is the final resting place of canadians who fought in the first part of the battle of Normandy, so DDay and beyond. Important to note that it is located in the village of Reviers, and not Beny-sur-Mer. The original cemetary was moved shortly...More

I visited several war memorials and cemeteries while in France, Belgium and The Netherlands. A great tribute to our soldiers who gave their lives for our freedom. Don't forget to sign the guest book.

On our tour we visited numerous Cemeteries from British, Canadian, French , and German. All these cemeteries which we visited are immaculately maintained to the absolute highest standard. The flowers, the grass edging, the finish on the headstones, are impeccable. And it is an honour...More
