Google's machine translation is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.
Do not translate text that appears unreliable or low-quality. If possible, verify the text with references provided in the foreign-language article.
The Borre British Cemetery is located in this village, in route de Sec-Bois. It contains 370 graves from the First World War, of which 129 are British, 238 Australian and 3 German.
In 1940, one of the first German planes damaged in the north of France crashed in Borre. The whole population came out to see the aircraft. Despite the warnings of the crew, who had been captured and locked in the town hall, dozens were killed when the bombs exploded.
