We came to pay our respects to a relation who is remembered on the 100th anniversary of their death. It is peaceful and well maintained although the engraving of the names of those who ha e no grave needs repairing. No blanks pages left in the visitors book so we had to add a piece of paper as had others before us. Memorable and emotional “Lest we should forget”

It is not the first of British or Allied soldiers Cemetery I visit in the occurrence of April 25, the Liberation Day. To all the Allies, the Partisans and the Italian civil acknowledgment of freeing us from nazi-fascism with a huge loss of life. Well, very well these Cemeteries maintained in an exemplary manner and are a MEMENTO for us citizens of Italy, England and the world from falling into error again inhuman and anti-human Nazi.

Im not sure why just this cemetery is on trip advisor - there are similar cemetries all over Italy well worth visiting for rememberance and for a history lesson. Approached through a small field and an avenue of trees this cemetery is adjacent to an itallian cemetery and set amid fields. It contains the graves of British and Commonwealth troops who died on the Piave river fighting with Italy against the Austrians. The headstones are inscribed with regimental insignia, name and an epitaph chosen by the family. Everyone, Field Marshall down to Priviate have the same gravestone - there are 417 here. There is also a memorial to troops with no known grave. The cemetery is kept in an immaculate state and is a great credit to the groundskeepers. There is the Grave of a Victoria Cross winner 2nd Lt J S Youll (Won the medal for fighting as Asiago - was killed in a later engagemet near here). Please visit the graveyard and contemplate the sacrifice of these brave souls.
