3. Le Cateau – International cemetery

German, Russian and British are buried in this WW1 military cemetery.

The international military cemetery on the road to Bavay contains the graves of over 5000 German soldiers, of Russian prisoners and of more than 700 Commonwealth soldiers. The difference between the British part with its air of subdued nature and the more untamed nature in the German part is striking. There is here in this cemetery an unusual monument in the form of a pyramid honouring jointly the memory of French and German soldiers.
