Westouter Churchyard and Extension

Westouter Churchyard and Extension

The village of Westoutre (now Westouter) remained in Allied hands from the early months of the First World War to the Armistice, but in the summer of 1918, after the Battles of the Lys, it was within 2.4 Kms of the front line. The Churchyard and Extension was used by field ambulances and fighting units at intervals from November 1914 to September 1918. It contains 98 Commonwealth burials of the First World War and three German graves. Casualty Details: UK 76; Canada 19; Australia 1; New Zealand 1; India 1; Germany 3; Total Burials: 101 Please note that at the moment, 1 Canadian soldier is not linked, as this is not shown on the CWGC site as linked to this cemetery.
