These are just some of the hundreds of war graves at Arras and the surrounding villages. A few years back, a group of us went to Arras for a few days in February - as you can see it was bitterly cold. You cannot visit this place without being completely dumbstruck by the scale of wasted lives. I have tried to convey this here, but you have to see these graveyards for yourself. It is a truly humbling experience.
