KANDAHAR FARM CEMETERY is located 10.5 Km south of Ieper town centre on the Niewkerkestraat (N314), a road leading from the N365 connecting Ieper to Wijtschate, Mesen (Messines) and on to Armentieres. From Ieper town centre the Rijselsestraat runs from the market square, through the Lille Gate (Rijselpoort) and directly over the crossroads with the Ieper ring road. The road name then changes to the Rijselseweg. On reaching the town of Mesen the first right hand turning leads onto the Nieuwkerkestraat (N314), which carries on to Nieuwkerke, via the village of Wulvergem. The KANDAHAR FARM CEMETERY lies 1 Km after passing through the village of Wulvergem, on the left hand side of Nieuwkerkestraat.
