Things to see in Crete, English War Cemetary - Souda Bay

Ok it doesn't sound that exciting for a holiday activity, but personally I found it a very moving place and very respectful how beautifully it is kept.  It is sad that there are many tributes to the unknown, but that they are remembered is a fine tribute itself.  Below are some photos, and I am very much of the "lest we forget".
Rows of immaculate war graves

Beautifully kept

 

Amazing backdrop but a reminder of the naval contribution!
There is also a German War Cemetery at Malame, as moving, and even greater in size :(
