During our holidays in Menton, we visited the cimetery.
We arrived to the 14 - 18 memorial .
All these names are Menton citizen-fellows who died during these 4 years.
"Passer-by, Remove your hat
Don't forget that I have been what you are
And you will be what we are"
We arrived to the Trabuquet, le carré de la Marne (square of the Marne) where have been buried Senegalese Tirailleurs who fought at our side during WWI. (Senegal made part of our Colonial 'empire' until 60's). After being injured at the front, they've been transfered in the South of France, in hotels converted in hospitals, to be treated if possible. Many (around 2000 men) died here far away from their country. (sources)
There were also Belgian soldiers
