SEAFORTH HIGHLANDERS - photographs

Photograph 1 - Three miles north of Ypres on the road to Poelkapelle in southern Belgium there is a small military graveyard called Seaforth Cemetery. The cemetery contains the bodies of 99 officers and men of the 2nd Battalion Seaforth Highlanders who fell attacking St. Julien on 25th and 26th April 1915. Although each headstone has a name inscribed, no body lies beneath them.   Most of the dead were buried in two pits in the middle of the field and over the next three years much fighting took place in this part of the Western Front and consequently some individual graves were lost.
