French War Cemetery

This postcard shows La Targette war cemetery in France. This French National Cemetery was created in 1919 and lies southwest of Neuville-St Vaast, a village just over six kilometres north of Arras. More than 11,000 French soldiers are buried there. A smaller British war cemetery is adjacent to La Targette. This LINK provides more detail.
