German Military Cemetery, La Cambe, Normandy, France
Figures of two mourning parents beneath a black cross. The remains of nearly 300 soldiers are buried in this tumulus which is maintained by the Volksbund Deutsche Kriegsgräberfürsorge.
Well captured monument.
Yes, very imposing.
Impressive. I’m sorry to have seen so few war memorials in Europe, let alone those of the "other" side.

like it!, very strong.
Nice shot, Ian. I’m only a bit concerned with something which clearly seems to be a ballistic missile, in the upper right corner of the picture! 😉

A most impressive monument, definately imposing and I can only guess, quite powerful in its presence .. having nearly 300 soldiers buried within I would find intimidating and saddening.
Thanks Graham, good to see you again.
