Cambrai German Military Cemetery
From 1914 to 1918, Cambrai was a key strategic headquarters, hospital and logistics location for the German Army. The wounded who succumbed there, and many soldiers killed at the front were, from 1917, buried in a new necropolis, on the Route de Solesmes. From the outset, the cemetery was designed to accommodate the dead from the hospitals and the Western Front; friends and foes alike. Route de Solesmes, Cambrai

Forty kilometres from Flesquières, on November 4, 1918, one of the great name of British poetry fell. A signed trail invites you to pay tribute to him. The circuit – ‘in the footsteps of Wilfred Owen’ – from the forest house where he wrote his last letter to his mother to the cemetery where he now rests, traces the last days of Wilfred Owen, one of the greatest of the Great War Poets.

Deborah is the only surviving tank from the 476 deployed at the Battle of Cambrai. In fact, only seven Mark IVs remain in the world. The only running example is on display at the Tank Museum in Bovington, Dorset; a male tank, that was presented to the Royal Navy's Gunnery School, HMS Excellent, after the war to commemorate their help training Tank Corps gunners; it was temporarily refurbished for Home Guard duties in 1940 during World War II. It is maintained in full running order.
