Photo of first world war graves in the Somme in France

This photo shows how many rows of grave stones there are recognising soldiers who fell in the First World War in the Somme. This photo is from the Dernancourt Communal Cemetery Extension. At the entrance to the cemetery is a stone with the following words carved in it: "The land on which this cemetery stands is the free gift of the French people for the perpetual resting place of those of the Allied armies who fell in the war of 1914-1918 and are honoured here".
