Tyne Cot Cemetery, Belgium - From the Pillbox

This panorama was taken from the top of one of the two remaining German pillboxes. The rough concrete construction of these can be seen. The slight rise of this location gives extensive views all the way to Ieper in the distance. The day was quite windy and Belgium students can be seen looking around the cemetery. They were set a task to find out the average age of the soldiers buried there.
