Souda Bay.

At Souda Bay there is a war cemetery. It is kept beautifully and is very peaceful.
When my sister was here on holiday, we took them to see it. Walking through the headstones is a very moving experience.  Many were unknown, many were very young, around 19 yrs. These men gave their lives fighting for freedom. To read more about Souda Bay War Cemetery go here.
It is not unusual to see people wiping away tears, I had them too.
There was a service here on Remembrance day. It was not good weather then for it started to rain just as the service was starting. Still they were remembered.
These men were tending the graves.
The entrance.
