III. B. 20.

Location:

Aire is an old fortified town on the north-eastern boundary of the Department of the Pas-de-Calais. It lies in the valley of the Lys, on the road, and the canal, between St. Omer and Bethune. It is about 14 kilometres south-south-east of St. Omer. The AIRE COMMUNAL CEMETERY is 0.75 kilometres north of the town, on the road to St. Omer and the 4 British plots are on the east side. The entrance from the Communal Cemetery is by a porch on the west side. A paved walk leads between the British graves to the War Stone, which is on the east side, backed by a brick and stone screen with semicircular stone niches at either end. The Cross stands at the entrance and at the south end is a French Memorial.
