Burial Information


Cemetery:

FIFTEEN RAVINE BRITISH CEMETERY, VILLERS-PLOUICH
Nord, France

Grave Reference:

Sp. Mem. A. 15.

Location:

Villers-Plouich is a village about 13 kilometres south-west of Cambrai and Fifteen Ravine British Cemetery lies to the east of the village on the south side of the road to the small village of La Vacquerie. "Fifteen Ravine" was the name given by the Army to the shallow ravine, once bordered by fifteen trees, which runs at right angles to the railway about 800 metres South of the village; but the cemetery is in fact in "Farm Ravine," on the East side of the railway line, nearer to the village. The Cemetery was begun by the 17th Welch Regiment in April, 1917, a few days after the capture of the Ravine by the 12th South Wales Borderers. It was sometimes called Farm Ravine Cemetery.
