Boulogne is a major French Atlantic seaport and its proximity to England meant that it became the major logistics and trans-shipment point for personnel and materiel during WW1 and in the early stages of WW2.

Hospitals were established in the area, and by necessity, cemeteries.

Boulogne Eastern is the largest of five cemeteries in the Boulougne area.  It consistes of a civil cemetery with a large CWGC annex.

Like other cemnteries in Eastern France it has sandy soil so the headstones are arranged horizontally.

If you have visited this cemetery, have a connection with it or have recent photogrpahs we would like to hear from you.  Email admin@rslvirtualwarmemorial.org.au for details.
