Is Thiepval covered by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission? If so it could be added to this category. I was quite surprised not to see it there.

Having done some research I find that it is, so I've added this category.

Nothing on the Ulstermen who died in Thiepval Wood? 86.40.211.212 (talk) 15:13, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

Correction needed?[edit]

In the paragraph section headed 'Anglo-French memorial', I notice it says the British Commonwealth graves are rectangular and made of white stone. I suspect this inaccurate as the burials are in earthen graves. Should this be rephrased as:

  • the British Commonwealth graves are rectangular and the headstones made of white stone, OR
  • the British Commonwealth graves are marked by headstones that are rectangular and made of white stone?

During World War II[edit]

I found some cool anecdotes about this memorial's liberation during World War II: http://greatwarphotos.com/2012/10/25/battlefields-in-ww2-thiepval-memorial-liberated-1944/

Does any of this fall as citable work for Wikipedia? Can any of the pictures be used? I've emailed the author with a link to this page; hopefully he will weigh in as well.
