Day one in Belgium.

Two crosses. The first, the Cross of Sacrifice at Lijssenthoek Cemetery, Poperinge. 10,788 casualties of the First World War are buried at Lijssenthoek, including 224 German soldiers and 35 men of the Chinese Labour Corps. We also saw the grave of Staff Nurse Nellie Spindler, who worked at the field hospital at Lijssenthoek.
