Wimereux Communal Cemetery is the final resting place of Canadian
John McCrae the author of "In
Flanders Fields". A plaque commemorating his life has been
erected in the cemetery by the Ontario government.
He died from influenza early in 1918 in the hospital in which Ada
was treated in November of the same year for the same illness.
The cemetery is unusual in that all the headstones lie flat to
the ground, because of the nature of the soil. It was being refurbished
at the time of our visit.
