Laying wreaths in Estaires, France yesterday

Alison Pooley and her sister Carmen Saunders laying a wreath in the English cemetery in Estaires, northern France, yesterday to mark the centenary of the Armistice.  Estaires was on the front line  for much of World War One and important Field Hospitals were created there. Men from Dolcoath Mine's was St John Ambulance team were stationed there - including Fred Head, James Phillips, Fred Negus and Leslie Pentecost (Alison and Carmen's grandfather). There are 900 British and allied graves in Estaires' Town cemetery- as well as many French civilian and military dead.
