Mort pour La France

Whilst on holiday in France this year I was struck by the wide variety and sheer numbers of war memorials, as a tribute to our allies, I have made this page which features the men of Fressin in the Pas-de-Calais where I was staying. It is a small village in farming country, so to have this many men die must have had a devastating effect on the community.
