Mont St Eloi is a village in the Department of the Pas-de-Calais, 8 kilometres north-west of Arras. The village stands on high ground overlooking the battlefields of Vimy and Souchez and the main Bethune-Arras road, and the ruined towers that rise from it were used as an observation post during the French attacks at Neuville-St Vaast and Givenchy in May 1915. Ecoivres is a hamlet lying at the foot of the hill, to the south-west and about 1.5 kilometres from Mont St Eloi on the Arras-St Pol line. The ECOIVRES MILITARY CEMETERY is on the D49 road.

  • Grave Marker– I took this image of Ernest Pringle's grave in the summer of 2011.  I am a history teacher and have been fortunate to visit my great great uncle's grave a few times with my students that I have taken overseas to visit battlefields of World War One and Two.  I was back in April 2012 and July 2015 to visit him and pay my respects.
