I was not aware my teeth were that nice.
I think I screwed up my stats last post, so:
- There are 137 Commonwealth cemeteries in the Ypres area
- 90,00 of the men who died in the Salient have no known grave. Their memorials are at Tyne Cot and the Menin Gate (their names wouldn’t fit on one memorial)
- On the first of July 1916, 58,000 men fell, 19,000 of them killed.
- There are over 73,000 names on the Thiepval Memorial.
Do the maths yourself, then take into account I haven’t mentioned German casualties.
